Hi, could you tell me if this sentence is correct? "Many people want to buy the advertised object". I thinks it sounds better than "the object advertised". Thanks

    You have the option, with many past participles, of reversing the usual word-order. It suggests "Many people want to buy the object which was advertised". I think it sounds better than "the advertised object".
