    正確

    He had a gun with which to defend himself. = He had a gun to defend himself with.

    只是將with移上前就要加which連接, 意思亦比較放重在 He had a gun.

    這句子之前是不是在敍述他有的其他物件? 如果是, "also" 就合理了.

    He had.........He also had a gun with which to defend himself.

    這樣就是主要說他還有一把槍, 補充說明是用來自衛的

    I agree with 小草, but can we just say: "He also had a gun to defend himself." ?

    He also had a gun with which to defend himself.

    這句 grammar 正確。

    英文句子中,將 preproposition 放在 relative pronoun 前是普遍的。

    “with which to defend himself” 是 phrase,所以只有 to infinitive 是可以的。

    句子中的 also 並非文法不容許,但這句子不應獨立出現,應有「上文」去配合“also”。

    He also had a gun with which he defended himself.

    equivalent to

    He also had a gun, he defended himself with the gun.

    He also had a gun with which to defend himself.

    Should read as following with same meaning:

    He owns a gun which using to defend himself.

    Note: also 這字在此單句中並無比較詞, 故不應用.

    He had a knife also had a gun to defend himself.

    error and correction;-

    He also had a gun(to defend himself) with.

    =which is used to defend

    =adjective clause(gun)

    =used to give more information about the gun

    =used to be exact usage about the gun that you mean

    =to defend himself.

    ---(with)=preposition.

    used in question Sir Winston Churchill once asked,

    This is the kind of English up (with which) I'll not put.

    ----(put)=preposition.

    不正確

    Which 之後應該先加Verb

    所以應該是He also had a gun with which is to defend himself.
