    Restrictive clauses are relative to adjective clauses. 1. 'with the golden hair' would be describing the Girl, because her hair is Golden. 2. What describes the dog ? The dog 'that ate my homework' 3. What describes the muffins ? The muffins 'that have cherries' 4. What describes the smile ? The smile that she gave them was 'beautiful' The adjectives phrases are in my apostrophes, hope you understand what restrictive clauses are now. :)
