    Dear susiedqq,

    If breaking this sentence in two, would they be as following?

    - This is the bus.
    - I go to school in this bus.

    Is it correct?

    Re: Type of sentence and putting a comma

    This / is / bus

    (in which I go to school is an adjective clause describing the bus)


    This is the bus that got in an accident (desribes the bus)

    This is the bus I take to school. (describes the bus)

    Yes I agree with you
    I think the prepostion should be ''by'' bus
    and I want to know should I put a comma after bus?

    I see. At first I thought "in" would be from the second sentence so it was used to connect two sentences. Now I get it.

    Thanks.
