Relative Clauses who, whose, where, which


Explanation:
A relative clause tells us which thing or person the speaker means.
"The man who works in the bank is my brother" - 'who works in the bank' tells us which man.
We use who in relative clauses for a person. Who is followed by a verb.
We use whose in relative clauses instead of his/hers/theirs. Whose is followed by a noun.
We use where in relative clauses to talk about a place. Where is followed by a noun or pronoun.
We use which (and that) in relative clauses to talk about a thing.
