I looked up relative clause, but still not sure I understand what a relative clause is.

  1. the first one is correct. It contains a relative clause

    #3 also has a subordinate clause, but not a relative clause. Relative clauses are clauses starting with the relative pronouns who/whom, that, which, whose, where, when.

    The last one is just a compound sentence, with two independent clauses separated by "and"
