    QUICK QUESTION

    Hi there I just completed one of the exercises on the site with a student under the 'correct or incorrect' section. Can you explain what is incorrect about the following statement please

    My project, that I spend most of my spare time on, is nearly complete.

    I have an idea but if I am correct in my way of thinking I am still unsure why. I would appreciate your clarication and explanation

    Many thanks

    Toni

    Re: QUICK QUESTION

    Use which instead of that when adding extra information with non-defining relative clauses.

    ",which I spent most of my spare time on," is extra information. This means you could remove it from the sentence without changing the basic sense.
