Another similar question, since I was not allowed to put both sentences in one post.
If you saw this sentence, what would you first think? That it has mistakes? That it was used a long time ago? Or maybe it seems to be correct and can be used nowadays?

The earthquake, struck at 6 a.m., destroyed over 100 hoouses.

The question is about the grammatical structure. The word "which" is omitted here. Can the sentence stay without "which"?

    It is wrong. If you do not tell us where you had which in the original sentence, it is impossible to take this further without rewriting your sentence for you.

    PS which e2efour has just done.
