should put before or after?

  1. Quite a few divorced people hope to get married again.
  2. Quite a few people divorced hope to get married again.

Which one is correct and why?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

The first one is correct.
divorced (adjective) people
people divorced (verb)

There are many p.p’s working as adjective you should to put AFTER the noun being modified.

1.The veccum-cleaner USED should be put back where it was.
2. We have to solve the problems INVOLVEFD.
3. That dog BARKING is Tom’s.

You’re right. My bad
