    I don't understand the question. What is "the opposition" that you don't understand?

    Sam, the nurse is British.
    The use of commas will determine whether or not your sentence is correct.

    Sam, the nurse is British = You are talking to someone called Sam and you are telling him/her that a specific nurse is British.
    Sam, the nurse, is British = There is a British nurse called Sam. You are imparting this information to someone.

    Note that we put a space after every comma.
