    Question Can i use relative clauses (which and which) in one sentence?

    Hi,

    I have a question that can i use relative clauses twice (which, who etc.) in one sentence? For example can i write like this in my academic essay : The line graph which is given below illustrates the quantity of three spreads (margarine etc.) which were consumed over 26 years between 1981 2007.

    The point i am trying to make is can i use "which" and then "who","where" or else "that" two times? Or can i use more than 2 times in one sentence? Is that make sense grammatically?

    Thank you for your helpings.

    There is no need to quote a post when you thank someone. If fact, there's no need to post anything at all. Just click on 'Like' and we'll all know that you appreciated the post.

    ps. bhai has now clicked 'Like' on this post. If you had clicked 'Like' on my first response, I would have interpreted it as 'Thanks'. I interpret bhai's Like as 'I agree' or 'That was useful'.

    Also please ensure that you capitalise the word "I" every time you write it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
