    "those people" or "prople" or "those"

    Hi there, are both the following sentences correct? Do they mean the same?

    1- Those people who want to leave their own societies, for whatever reason, have the right to do so.

    2- Those who want to leave their own societies, for whatever reason, have the right to do so.

    3- People who want to leave their own societies, for whatever reason, have the right to do so.


    My question is: are the three words "those people", "those" and "people" interchangeable in the given sentences and These kind of sentences?

    My question is: are the three words "those people", "those" and "people" interchangeable in the given sentences and in these kinds of sentences?
    All three of your sentences are correct and effectively mean the same. It's impossible to say if they're always possible in "these kinds of sentences" without knowing the context of those other sentences.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
