C omma: Adjective Clauses (Continued)
 
Lesson 5-17
Prompt:The decision to mark off an adjective clause with commas or use no commas is the writer's decision. Mark off adjective clauses that are just added information and are not necessary to the full meaning of the sentence: "Students at our school, which is the best school, are going to graduate." Do not mark off adjective clauses necessary for the full meaning of the sentence: "Students who are receiving 'F' grades shall fail."
Directions:Each sentence below contains an adjective clause. Insert commas by clicking between the words where you desire commas to be. If the sentence is correct as shown, click to select "correct as is" at the end of the sentence.
