Homework Help: Clauses - Grammar

Posted by Nora on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 4:17pm.

Identify all the relative clauses in the following sentences. Which ones are restrictive and which are non-restrictive? How do you know?

a. My sister Mary [who lives in Florida] is coming to visit us. = non-restrictive
b. The girl [who had the most points] won the contest. = nonrestrictive
c. Vancouver, [which is in British Columbia,] is a lovely city. = restrictive
d. The child [whose mother was later] was getting nervous. = nonrestrictive
e. The books [that are on the shelf] are for you. = restrictive

I have put the relative clauses in square brackets. However, I'm not sure I am correct in relation to which are restrictive and non-restrictive. Am I right?
