    Question which or that


    Just need a little help with this. please turn me from to

    Can you explain to me when a sentence should use which or that?


    A girl buys a scarf which is /that is beautiful.

    I think it should be which is because which is beautiful is decribing the scarf being beautiful but then again I don't know.

    Can you point me in the right direction of where to find this info on website?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Re: which or that

    Both which and that can be used for defining (restrictive) clauses; only which can be used for non-defining (non-restrictive) clauses.

    The former is not preceded by a comma.

    In your example, either which or that can be used.
