Use adjective clause connectors correctly

An adjective clause is a clause that describes a noun.
An adjective clause comes directly after the noun that it describes.
Ex:
The woman is filling the glass that put on the table.
In this example we have two clauses:
Clauses as we mention contain a subject and a verb:
Woman is the subject of the verb is filling, and she is the subject of the verb put. That is the adjective clause connector that joins these two clauses, and the adjective clause that she put on the table describes the noun glass.
The glass that she put on the table contains milk.
In this example we have two clauses:
Clauses as we mention contain a subject and a verb:
Glass is the subject of the verb contains, and she is the subject of the verb put. That is the adjective clause connector that joins these two clauses, and the adjective clause that she put on the table describes the noun glass.
Adjective clause connectors
Whom: for people
Which: for things
That: for people or things
Ex:
I liked the book which you recommended.
The book which you recommended was interesting.
Note: the adjective connectors can be omitted. This omission is very common in spoken English or in casual written English. It is not as common in formal English or in the structure section of the TOEFL test.
