Not really):

Restrictive clauses limit the possible meaning of a preceding subject.

So for example...
sasabina123
  • sasabina123
The suspect in the lineup who has red hair committed the crime. Note how the subject "suspect" in this sentence is restricted in two ways: we know that this suspect is both in the lineup and has red hair. As a result, we know that the other suspects, who are not in the lineup, could not have committed the crime. Moreover, of those suspects in the lineup, we know that the one suspect in the lineup with red hair committed the crime. If there were more than one suspect in the lineup with red hair, the above usage would be incorrect because it implies a different meaning.

Try narrowing down the choices if you are guessing, that way you have a higher chance of getting it right.

Which sentences contain a restrictive clause? 1. We fed the kittens that we found in the shed. 2. My grandmother, who was growing crankier by the day, scolded him harshly. 3. This is the house that I grew up in. 4. Our teacher, who was always ready to share in a good joke, laughed with us.
sasabina123
  • sasabina123
This is the same as the first question, what are your guesses?

  • anonymous
2 and 4?..
sasabina123
  • sasabina123
I feel like all of them have a restrictive clause...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Really? How so?
sasabina123
  • sasabina123
In the first one it could be "found in the shed" and in the third one it could be "that I grew up in" because it narrows down what the down could be like specifically.

So do you think it's all four, or just one and three? I had one and three at first but I thought i kept getting it wrong.
sasabina123
  • sasabina123
Yeah, I think it might just be one and three...
