I've seen the following structure in writing:
"The table whose legs are broken, sits in the backyard"
Is this correct? I've learned that "whose" must only be used with living beings and with the above example it must be written this way:
"The table, the legs of which are broken, sits in the backyard"
I would appreciate any clarification...
I appreciate your help and your suggestion is correct, but it does not clarify what I want to know...
The answer is that while the strict rule is that it should only be used with living beings, in fact it is frequently colloquially used for non-sentient things.
If writing for an assignment, your suggested sentence is correct.
Thank you so much...
I need some help, in the sentence:
To mix your own plant-powered infusion, ________ can be made with any kind of herd, you need to boil five cups of water an add five tablespoons of herbs.
Which or Whose? I've looked at the dictionary, but both can be used to show adittional information about something, whose can be used with people too, but in this example, what is the best?
