    Comas and pronouns (which, that, who) - with or without?!

    Hello everyone! Could someone please look through this picture with sentences and tell me whether my teacher corrected it right?

    In the first sentence I omitted "which" (on purose), and omitting "planted" was a typo.
    In the third one, the bracket should also include "is" - another typo.

    These would be the mistakes I made accidentally. Everything else is what I wanted (intended) to write.
    Thank you!Click image for larger version.

    Your teacher made some mistakes, in my opinion.

    :)
    I'm really glad to see I'm right. It's not about the grade, but because I'm really interested in learning English.
    Could you be more specific? What mistakes did I make, and which did my teacher?

    P.S. My teacher is not a native speaker.

    It would have been better to have posted it on the forum. However, I will be able to do a quick analysis.

    The first sentence should either have no commas or two commas. I would probably use two (one after "man" and one where your teacher put it).

    Re:

    A short, bald man seen running away from the scene of the crime is being sought by the police.

    The underlined phrase is the complete subject. The sentence as written should not be changed. (No comma should go between the subject and the verb that immediately follows it.)

    The underlined phrases are the subjects of the following sentences:


    The underlined phrase is the complete subject.
    The sentence as written should not be changed.

    Your teacher got the second sentence exactly right. (You left out a couple of words.)

    You left periods off the ends of several sentences, and your teacher missed all of them.

    Well, that was just a homework, not a dictation :)
