"A relative clause is another name for an adjective clause. This is because both perform a function similar to an adjective in a sentence--they add information to a noun.

There are two types of relative/adjective clauses: restrictive and nonrestrictive.

Restrictive Clauses

"I want a car that is red."

In this sentence, the relative clause "that is red" answers the question, "Which car do you want?" or "What kind of car do you want?" Because it answers this question, it is a restrictive relative clause.

Nonrestrictive Clause

"My mother, who lives in Kansas City, is 62."

In this sentence, the relative clause "who lives in Kansas City" does not answer the question, "Which one?". Instead, it gives extra information. Because it gives extra information, it is a nonrestrictive relative clause.
