    Re: a big part of...

    1 and 2 are OK but would sound more natural with "... many of which he has shown us" and "of which he has shown us many".

    3, 4 and 5 are all wrong because "He has talking" is wrong.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you very much, Emsr2d2, and my apologies.
    It was supposed to be 'was talking'.
