## The usage of "being" and "in which"

2

Here, I am confused about how to make a meaningful sentence.

This is my idea. I want to say:

Another example for under-segmentation is shown in Fig 14. By this effect, nearby dormers have merged. Because of that, an edge referring to a dormer is lost.

So, I express my idea more concisely like this:

Another instance of being under-segmentation is illustrated in (Fig. 14) in which the nearby dormers have merged and it causes to lose a graph edge.

So, my questions are:

• Am I correctly using the word being? I am always confused about when to use it.
• Does in which refer to the idea by this effect?

1being under-segmentation would become being under-segmented. I haven't heard by this effect and neither found anything relevant in Google, so I am assuming it is your personal usage. If I think about the literal meaning of it, in which isn't quite meaning the same; I am not claiming in which makes the sentence wrong, but it is not being used the same way By the effect was used. – Mistu4u – 2013-10-05T18:46:54.613

1it causes to lose a graph edge is ungrammatical: you must either convert to a noun phrase, *it causes loss of a graph edge*, or provide the verb lose with a subject, it causes [something] to lose a graph edge. – StoneyB on hiatus – 2013-10-05T20:53:35.730
