Advertising is designed to motivate people to act (which is ) involved try/trying to persuade people to make a purchase.

Is the word in the bracket implied? which one is the proper answer ?

Hi,

I agree with what has already been said. Your original sentence makes no sense, no matter which of the two words in bold you choose.

This needs some help. I would split it into two sentences.

Advertising is designed to motivate people to act.
It involves trying to persuade people to make a purchase.

Is the overall sentence structure correct here? It seems such a strange construction to me.
Shouldn't it be something like the following?
  • Advertising is designed to motivate people to act, which involves trying to persuade people to make a purchase.
