    who do you think you are and/by telling me...

    Hi.

    1- Who do you think you are?
    2- You cannot tell me what to do.

    I have two sentences above and want to combine them but I cannot do it in a grammatical way. Can you help me with that? Here's my try:

    1- Who do you think you are telling me what to do?
    2- Who do you think you are and telling me what to do?
    3-
    Who do you think you are by telling me what to do?

    No. 1 is correct.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
