1.We have a camera, which is hiding there. 2. we have a camera, being hiding there. 3. we have a camera hiding there. Could I change sentence ''1'' to ''2'' or''3''? Do those grammatically correct?

Hi everyone, Just one little thing. Would it make sense to say: ''It's very easy to get lost in this city because there're a lot of streets branching off from each other. It's then quite tricky to find your way through them.

Yes, that makes sense. there're is an unusual contraction, however, so we usually write that out and say it as "there are". In contrast, there's (there is) is quite common.
