1a. These pipes will channel water to the settlement. - OK
1b. Water is channeled through these pipes to the settlement. - OK
1c. Water channeled through these pipes to the settlement. As written, not a complete sentence. Possible example- Water channeled through these pipes to the settlement is suitable for drinking.
2a. The amount of money that they channeled into this deal is not clear.
2b. The amount of money channeled into this deal is not clear.
2c.The amount of money that was channeled into this deal is not clear.

It is possible to ask the question
How much money did they channel into this deal?
but the answer would begin:
The amount of money they …

The fact is that the verb ‘channel’ is transitive. You cannot say ‘the water channelled (itself) through these pipes’ in the intransitive form.

Anglophile,
Can I say as below:
“Water that was channeled through these pipes to the settlement is suitable for drinking.”
Please comment.
Thanks.

Yes, you can, I’d say.

You can, but you do need to be aware of the mix of tenses.

Water that was (in the past) channeled through these pipes to the settlement is (still currently) suitable for drinking.

If speaking about a past time entirely, it would be:
Water that was channeled through these pipes to the settlement was suitable for drinking.

Alternatively if speaking about the present entirely:
Water that is channeled through these pipes to the settlement is suitable for drinking.

Please see message #2 where I first explained this.

How this sentence was found to be incorrect is mysterious!

Allifathima,
Just so that you are aware, the problem is not with ‘how’ so Anglophile’s sentence in #10 does not equate with earlier sentences. Please don’t make the mistake of trying to follow the pattern there.

As explained in message #2, ‘how much money…’ is a question, answered by ‘the amount of money…’
To expand upon that, it is possible to use ‘how much money’ at a later point in your response/statement, by giving the sentence a different subject.

Question:

How much money was channelled into this deal?
Statement or answer:
The amount of money (that was) channelled into this deal is not clear.
or
We do not know how much money was channelled into this deal.

(If you do know the cost, and it was low, you can use much:
Not much money was channelled into this deal.)

Question:

Fathima

We do not know how much of the budget was channelled into this deal.
We do not know how much (of the budget) was channelled into this deal.

How much of the budget (money) was channelled into this deal is not known to us.

This is the maximum I can do to help you. I’d offer no more comments.

Incorrect, as explained. At the very best they are very poorly and awkwardly phrased and should be avoided.

Ideally that should be ‘I’ll’, not ‘I’d’. Modals are very difficult.
