  3. So I Rewrote it. this is what i came up with. i tried my best not to copy.

    So In a defining clause, use the word *that* And In a non-defining clauses, use *which* which Is as disposable as a mask. If you are able to remove the clause without messing up the meaning of the sentence, then the clause is nonessential. And When You use *That* is used in defining clauses.

  4. In your paragraph, you're using two terms: "defining" and "nonessential" but their relationship to each other is not clear. Please refine your writing by using only one pair:
    defining & nondefining
    OR
    essential & nonessential

    Try again.

  9. I thought I did!

    Use only one or the other:
    defining & nondefining
    OR
    essential & nonessential

    Don't mix them up!

    Do you see what changes I made? Only "defining" and "non-defining" are used. No mixing up "non-essential" in this!!

  27. so basically:
    "that" cannot be removed from the sentence, but "which" can. you use "that" when referring to something- especially infront of you- (e.g. "that dog") but "which" is used to add information, such as "the dog, which has a history of thievery, stole a pie"

    hope this makes sense and is correct? don't copy and paste btw. do your own research and stuff

  39. Essential Clause is the info in the clause necessary to the understanding of the sentince while a Nonessential clause uses commas before and after nonessential clauses that interrupt a sentince without changing the essential meaning. An example for essential clause: The bike that my dad built looked brand new. The example for nonessential clause: The garage, that was really old, had alot of boxes. When you use relative pronouns you have to use them correctly: Who relates to people (subject); Whom relates to people (whom); Which relates to animals and objects; That relates to people, animals, and things; Whose refers to possession; Where refers to place; When refers to time; Why refers to reason; What relates to things.

  42. Ignore the first sentince. you must use 3-5 sentinces and explain how and when to use the relitive pronouns. Also explain the two diffrences of essential and nonessential.
