In the textboxes, combine each set of sentences so that each newly formed sentence contains a relative clause. You may combine the sentences using reduced forms in any way that preserves the original meaning of the pair of sentences. As you combine sentences, be careful to use correct punctuation. Refer to the Relative Clauses and Commas and Semicolons chapters to review how to do this.

Please note, there may be multiple revision options although you will see only one option after you submit each response. Compare your revision to the one provided and determine if one is more effective. In each revision, the relative clause is bolded. 

You must respond to each question before the AGG response will be displayed. After you submit each response, you will see the AGG response, but you won’t be able to see your response until the end. After the quiz, you will be able to review the summary of responses including the original sentence, your own response and the AGG revision. This quiz has 5 questions.

Example: The people ­­are from the justice department. The people are not just.

Full Form Revision: The people who are from the justice department are not just.

Reduced Form Revision: The people from the justice department are not just.
