    Can I change 'the book which is not reliable' into 'a non-reliable book' ?
    ,as we can change 'the table which is not metalic' into 'a non-metalic table'

    Maybe. Can you write a sentence using the phrase?

    Note the correct spelling of "metallic".

    Please don't put a space before a question mark, and remember to start each sentence with a capital letter and end it with appropriate punctuation.

    Re: non-reliable

    A book which is not reliable is an unreliable book (not non-reliable).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
