    Do you mean to ask whether someone knows which country produces/emits the most pollution?
    I am not a teacher.

    No. If you're asking if the person knows which country produces the most pollution, then that's how your question should be worded. Try again.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    As EMS stated earlier, you should use "which" in your questions.

    Re: Do you know about the country that causes most of the pollution of the world?

    Go back to post #1. In all three sentences:

    1. Delete "about the".
    2. Replace it with the word "which".
    3. Delete "that".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "Most of the pollution in the world" sounds better.
