Take a look here also, above/below | Antimoon Forum
In the sentence (that is located) above <adverb>
In the above sentence <adjective> & <see note below>
The above sentence <adjective>
In the sentence (that is located) below <adverb>
In the below sentence <adjective>
The below sentence <adjective>
In short, all the combinations work except below + sentence. Below, unlike above, can't function as an adjective.
Note, above can function as an adjective, but if it's a transformation or modification of in the sentence that is located above, wherein it functions as an adverb, then this phrase in the above sentence)--while often used--is awkward, but only from a strictly grammatical point of view. That is, people will say it and write it, but some, especially the most pedantic of speakers, will question its construct, because above is moved out of an adverbial position into an adjectival position:
Adverbial postion: In the sentence above...
Adjective position: In the above sentence...
In post-position or pre-position?
There is a misuse of which in the last two sentences. We can not use which in a restrictive relative clause.
The sentences that are above are correct.
The sentences that are below are correct.
