Hello.

Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

"After the unpleasant episode of the video, the young teacher feared for the negative effects that this could have on their students, so she decided to confront directly who had uploaded it. After a quick inspection of the infamous account, she realized that it didn't seem to be the account of of whom she initially she thought to be the guilty one, but of another person."

Thanks.

Hi Nikitus; How do you find the following?


"After the unpleasant episode of the video, the young teacher feared for the negative effects that could have on her students, so she decided to confront directly who had uploaded it. After a quick inspection of the disgusting account, she realized that it didn't seem to be the handiwork of whom she initially thought to be the guilty one, but of some other person." IMO

The original form is quite the mouthful.

After a quick inspection of the infamous account, she realized that it didn't seem to be the work of that person at all, but of someone else entirely."

NKM's is the only version that doesn't mess up with pronouns and has no subject missing. It's the only correct and clear version.

I find TMe is also correct.

Just because the writer of an article is British doesn't mean that they use English correctly-DragOnspeaker.
