Hello raj.kumar123,

Whether or not a piece of information is defining or not may be apparent from the information itself, or it may be context-dependent. That is why the same clause can be both a non-defining and a defining relative clause. It appears to me that you have a good grasp of the use of relative clauses and should be able to decide from your context whether or not a comma is necessary. The original sentence appears to me to be likely to be a defining relative clause, but it does depend on the context.

As far as your second question goes, we have a policy of not commenting on other sites or the information they contain.

Best wishes,

Hello, sir. I have question reg. Task 3 #2. Why we use the Germany ARE going to win instead of the Germany IS going to win? Does it means the sentence is talking about the country's players?

Hello Lebenswelt,

The names of teams can be either singular (when we are thinking of the club or team as an institution) or plural (when we are thinking of the team as a group of players). In most contexts the speaker can choose whichever they prefer.

Hello vertrek,

It's great that you want to practise speaking English, but I'm afraid that exchanging personal information such as Wechat IDs goes against our House Rules - that is why your ID has been removed.
