hi everyone : )

Why this is wrong?
The department defines a private passenger vehicle to be one that is registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds.

Why this is correct?
The department defines a private passenger vehicle as one that is registered to an individual and that has a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds.

the first sentence has two problems. one is idiom and second is parllel structure.
the correct idiom is define ........ as
parrallel strucuture is "that is registered ............... and that has a gross weight ....................... "

same reasoning.

'to be one' suggests that it isn't one yet

this first sentence also means that the weight of individual is 8000 pounds and not the truck......[/u]
