    #1 The vase of flowers, kept in the balcony, attracts people's attention.

    Hi there,
    I think I could eventually come up with a proper example.
    Please do not get bothered as I am asking same question that I asked in another thread. Just let me know whether the syntax in each sentence is correct or incorrect.

    #1 The vase of flowers, kept in the balcony, attracts people's attention.

    #2 The vase of flowers, which is kept in the balcony, attracts people's attention.
    #3 The vase of flowers which is kept in the balcony attracts people's attention. (No comma)

    #4 The vase of flowers attracts people's attention, which is kept in the balcony.
    #5 The vase of flowers attracts people's attention which is kept in the balcony. (No comma)

    Thanks!

    Re: #1 The vase of flowers, kept in the balcony, attracts people's attention.

    If you change "in" to "on" (it's "on the balcony"), then 1, 2 and 3 are correct.

    4 and 5 are wrong because it suggests that the thing which is kept on the balcony is people's attention.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
