Hi everyone, I would like to know if the following sentences are grammatically correct
1) The leather (that/which) we make the jackets with is expensive
2) The leather is the material (that/which) we made the jackets with
3) The leather that is the material (that/which) we made the jackets with is expensive.
4a) The woman whose house I was linving in for 2 years is nice
or should I say
4b) The woman in whose house I was leaving for 2 years is nice ?

I know that we could use sentences more simple to express the same ideas, but I really would like to know if grammatically this sentences are correct.

thank you...

1) The leather with which we make the jackets is expensive.

This is the most grammatically correct way to say it. I don't see a problem with the sentence as you wrote it; it just flows better this way.

2) Leather is the material with which we made the jackets.

When you're talking about something in general in English, you don't need to add the article "the" before it. Just "leather" is sufficient. You shouldn't end a sentence with a preposition, so this wouldn't be correct because "with" is at the end of the sentence.

3) The leather material with which we made the jackets is expensive.

I'm not sure that "leather material" sounds right...The original sentence sounds strange because the phrase "that is the material we made the jackets with" is an unnatural-sounding phrase.

Sentence 4b is correct, except that you said "leaving" instead of "living"...

Good job! Keep up the good learning!
