    Default There is nothing that she won't do

    "There is nothing that she won't do for a tan"

    Is the underline clause a relative clause? If it is, can I paraphrase it like this "She won't do nothing for a tan"?; I'm a little confuse because "She will do anything for a tan" makes more sense.

    You would paraphrase it as "She will do anything for a tan".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    So is it a relative clause in the first place?
