    subjunctive clause

    The noise disturbs other students who are studying in nearby classes.
    Cann I omit "who are". I'm not sure.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

    You can, but it is not a subjunctive clause in my view.

    I agree.

    A purist might use a subjunctive in a sentence such as:

    Do not use this room for band practice, lest the noise disturb students studying in neighbouring roms
