    relative clause but omit which

    Hi,

    -A clause is a group of words which contains a finite verb but (which) can't occour in isolation.

    Is the relative pronoun 'which' coming after 'but' necessary, or is that understandable if omitted?

    Thanks.

    I prefer it with "which" but it would still be understandable without it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
