hi there,

Which one is correct? If both are correct, what is the difference?

1. Flourescent clothing, which include such items as T-shirts, socks and shoelaces, were also popular.

2. Flourescent clothing, which include items such as T-shirts, socks and shoeslaces, were also popular.

Thanks
pete

Hi there

I think the difference is here:

There's a certain sense that in #2 some of the clothing may not be considered as "items" while in #1 all the clothing would be "items."

To me there is no difference in the sentences apart from word order. Both indicate that popular fluorescent clothing includes these items.
