    adrenalinman, no sentence is correct without a punctuation mark at the end.

    And when you use a full stop (which you need to do much more often!), you must follow it with a space.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: present perfect and past perfect passive relative reduction

    By the way, adrenalinman, when you use just in tenses with two auxiliary verbs, always put it between the auxiliary verbs, not after.

    which have been just brought (not right)
    which have just been brought (right)

    See above. You must put a space after a full stop before you write the next word.
