    It's tautologous to say "and took" and "which he collected".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Dear emsr2d2:

    Kevin was at the theater and saw the flyers. He took one of them, because he was collecting the flyers among other things.

    Thanks.

    Re: Kevin stopped at the ticket office of Scally theater

    Wouldn't it be simpler to say "Kevin took one of the flyers available at the theater" or "Kevin took a flyer from outside the theater"? Is it relevant that he's collecting flyers and other things?

    Nikitus, I have merged these two threads because they are about almost identical sentences.

    Re: Kevin stopped at the ticket office of Scally theater

    Is this sentence correct?



    "Kevin stopped at the ticket office of the Scally theater. He looked at the upcoming releases and took a few flyers that were there, which he collected."

    Yes, it is correct to remark that he collect the flyers among other things.

    Thanks!
