Hello, Essam,

I live in a city and my grandparents live in ( a village - the country) among the fields.

We generally oppose "the city" to "the country." "The country among the fields" does not make sense. You can say:

- I live in a city and my grandparents live in the country.

- I live in a city and my grandparents live in a village in the country.

I agree with Gustavo that "in a village among the fields" is better than "in the country among the fields." Since to be among the fields is to be in the country, I think the other version needs a comma: "in the country, among the fields."

Incidentally, if this weren't an exercise, but were an actual attempt to communicate, it is possible to speak of living "in a country village." We can even speak of living "among the fields in a country village."
