  1. 1. Using relative pronouns where, that or which
  2. 2. When you use where as a relative pronoun, it’s because the embedded sentence has a preposition. If the embedded sentence has no preposition, use relative pronouns that or which.
  3. 3. #1. The store _________ I bought my computer is having a sale now.
  4. 4. Main Sentence: The store is having a sale now. Embedded Sentence: I bought my computer at the store.
  5. 5. There is a preposition in the embedded sentence, so we use the relative pronoun where: 1. The store where I bought my computer is having a sale now.
  6. 6. #2. Do you book mark the Websites ________ you visit often?
  7. 7. Main Sentence: Do you mark the Web sites? Embedded Sentence: You visit the Web sites often.
  8. 8. There is no preposition in the embedded sentence, so we use the relative pronoun that or which: 2. Do you bookmark the Web sites that you visit often?
  9. 9. There is no preposition in the embedded sentence, so we use the relative pronoun that or which: 2. Do you bookmark the Web sites that you visit often?
  10. 10. Use “where” as relative pronoun to replace the prepositional phrase. If you keep the preposition after embedding the sentence as an adjective clause, us which (not that):
  11. 11. #3. The box at the top of your browser is the place in __________ you type the Web address.
  12. 12. Main Sentence: The box at the top of your browser is the place. Embedded Sentence: You type the Web address in the place.
  13. 13. There is a preposition in the embedded sentence, but we are keeping the preposition in the final sentence, so we use which: 3. The box at the top of your browser is the place in which you type the Web address.
  14. 14. In this kind of adjective clause, use which. Don’t use that. It is equally correct to use relative pronoun where to replace the whole prepositional phrase:
  15. 15. The box at the top of your browser is the place where you type the Web address.
  16. 16. Now let’s think about #4. There are web sites ____________ you can compare prices of electronics
  17. 17. What is the main sentence?
  18. 18. Main Sentence: There are Web sites. What is the embedded sentence?
  19. 19. Main Sentence: There are Web sites. Embedded Sentence: You can compare prices of electronics on the Web sites.
  20. 20. Is there a preposition in the embedded sentence?
  21. 21. Yes, there is: You can compare prices of electronics on the Web sites.
  22. 22. What relative pronoun will you use?
  23. 23. 4. There are Web sites where you can compare prices of electronics.
  24. 24. #5 is similar to #4.
  25. 25. #6 and #7 are similar to #2.
  26. 26. #8 is similar to #4 and #5.
  27. 27. #9 is similar to #3.
  28. 28. Now you’re on your own!
