Hi, Abo Hamza,

It is wrong to duplicate the object within the same clause:

* ๐ป๐‘’ โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘  ๐‘Ž ๐‘™๐‘œ๐‘ก ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘š๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘’๐‘ฆ THAT โ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘‘๐‘œ๐‘’๐‘ ๐‘›'๐‘ก ๐‘˜๐‘›๐‘œ๐‘ค ๐‘คโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ก ๐‘ก๐‘œ ๐‘‘๐‘œ ๐‘ค๐‘–๐‘กโ„Ž IT.

"it" is inside the relative clause, which already has an object, the relative pronoun "that." Notice how "it" is fine if "that" is a conjunction:

- He has so much money that he doesn't know what to do with it.

In this case, "it" is inside an adverbial clause of result and its antecedent, "so much money," forms part of the main clause, so there is no duplication.

Also, Gustavo and Abo Hamza, I would allow a more simple conjunction like "and" or "but":

1a: He has a lot of money and he doesn't know what to do with it.
1b: He has a lot of money but he doesn't know what to do with it.

Otherwise, Abo Hamza, I would be perfectly OK with:

1c: He has a lot of money that he doesn't know what to do with.

Hi, all,

Great to see your enlightening comments here once again, Doc V.  I've decided to comment on this question just to welcome you back. Well, a friend of mine has just told me that the original sentence is:

- He has such a lot of money that he doesn't know what to do with it.

I see that there is nothing wrong with the original sentence, but Abo Hamza has changed every thing when he omitted 'such'.
