    This looks like homework.

    You try first.

    Smile Re: Adjective Clause

    1. My brother, showed us his new car of which he was very proud.
    2 Mary has a son, whose photograph was shown to us, is a policeman.

    One more question --- I wonder if I am correct in changing the following:
    3. All of Mary's brother are married. Mary has three brothers.
    into:-
    Mary has three brothers, all of whom were married.
    Thanks a lot

    3. All of Mary's brother are married. Mary has three brothers.
    into:-
    Mary has three brothers, all of whom were married. Again, tense.
    Thanks a lot
    You might want to re-write your sentences and post again. See some suggestions above.
