It cleft sentence

Post by fortunagee » Wed Apr 17, 2019 7:40 am

Hello there
When I was teaching 'It-cleft', a question came to my mind.

1. It is London that she will arrive at.
2. It is at London that she will arrive.

Which sentence is grammatically correct?

I think the two would be possible. but not sure.
Please tell me which is the correct one or both of them are correct.
And if possible, tell me the reason.
I'm waiting for your help.
Thank you.

Both possible but 2 is extremely formal.
