SENTENCE COMBINATION, July 6th, 2010

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important skill in writing. There are many ways to do this--many possible bonus points! Try to combine the following three sentences.
Sentence 1: A $2,000 car has been introduced in India.
Sentence 2: It is more available and affordable for the masses.
Sentence 3: It will also cause a number of problems both in India and elsewhere.

A $2,000 car, which is more available and affordable for the masses, has been introduced in India; however, it will also cause a number of problems both in India and elsewhere.

A $2,000 car that has been introduced in India, is more available and affordable for the masses, and it will also cause a number of problems both in India and elsewhere.

SAADAT: Yes, but omit the first comma--it separates the subject from its verb.
