Please help Ms.Sue its a six grade level.
If you are referring to the different clauses and resulting comma uses,
~~ restrictive means that the clause restricts the meaning of the noun it's modifying; example: The lady who is standing over by the painting looks familiar.
~~ non-restrictive means that the clause does not restrict the meaning of the noun it's modifying; it adds information but is not needed to make the sentence clear; example: My older sister, who is standing over by the painting, is looking at us.
If you're asking about restrictive and nonrestrictive clauses, study these sites carefully.
what if it says
Marco, my older brother, likes to play
my older brother is underlined would that be nonrestrictive or restrictive
It's non-restrictive (added information) because Marco is already clearly identified. This is also why there are commas before and after my older brother.
