what is she upset about

Post by azz » Tue Sep 22, 2020 10:32 am

a. What TV series is she upset about not being produced?
b. What TV series is she most upset about not being produced?

c What TV series is she upset about not being cast in?
d. What TV series is she most upset about not being cast in?

Are the above sentences grammatically correct?

I think the first two don't work. It is the TV series that is not produced. The sentences don't make sense to me. The second pair sound fine to me. She wasn't cast in the TV series.

Many thanks.

They all seem perfectly acceptable to me. I don't see that there is any problem with the first pair.

Why don't they make sense to you?

Beyond being unpardonably ugly, the sentences are, as Erik says, unexceptionable.
