    'which' is a relative pronoun fronting a relative clause.

    [how does one do "strike thru"?] which - relative pronoun, replaces 'it'.

    Same thing here, Hansolo.

    It [which] advertised a brand of bubblegum.

    Re: coordinator"which "

    Thanks for the reply, but i dont understand.

    Which is a relative pronoun. Does a relative pronoun(which) have the same purpose as a coordinatoor?

    I thought "which" could be used to join clauses(sentences) together?

    Re: coordinator"which "

    ok thank you for the reply.

    A relative pro noun when refering to a person. I would use who. I think that's correct; however, i am unsure when to use which. Is the term "which" used when reffering to a thing.

    What are things and how are they different to an object.
    Things maybe a "pen,paper,house, and car.

    No, 'which' is not a coordinator! 'Coordinator' is an alternative term for a coordinating conjunction (and, or but, etc.) Relative pronouns are, however, classified as CONNECTORS, i.e. words that serve to link clauses.

    Write it like this:
    Do sentences 1 and 2 have correct punctuation?
    or, Are sentences 1 and 2 correctly punctuated?
