Choose a label that best describes the phrase in CAPS:

Study these sites carefully, then please repost with your answers.
So #1 is an appositive
and I'm still not sure about #2
btw, yes i did check both sites.
#1 is not an appositive. This is a line from near the top of the OWL site.

So then an adjective phrase?
