    Relative phrase

    Hello.
    This exercise says to combine the two sentences into one, using relative phrase.
    1- Some buildings were hit by bombs. They are still burning.
    a- Some buildings hit by bombs are still burning.(key)
    2- Some people want to smoke. They have to leave the building.
    b- People wanting to smoke have to leave the building.(key)

    Is it all right to rewrite them as follows, please?
    c- The buildings hit by bombs are still burning.
    d- The people wanting to smoke have to leave the building.

    Re: Relative phrase

    Yes, but none of them contain a relative clause, so they are not relative constructions and thus there is no relative phrase.
