Hi, could you tell me which option is better? "I am writing to enquire about the conservation project, which I have seen advertised in a newspaper" or "I am writing to enquire about the conservation project, which was advertised in a newspaper". Thanks.

    What do you mean by "better"? The two sentences have different meanings. One says that you saw the advertisement, the other says that you know of the advertisement's existence.

    Are both sentences grammatically correct?
