restrictive clause og 107 ... [#permalink] New post 13 May 2008, 03:28
The physical structure of the human eye enables it to sense light of wavelengths up to 0.0005 mm; infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength-0.1 mm- is too long to be registered by the eye.
a)infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength-0.1 mm- is too long to be registered by the eye.

e) however, infrared radiation has a wavelength of 0.1 mm that is too long for the eye to be registered, thus making it invisible.

For option (e) OG says.. using a restrictive clause introduced by "that" suggests not all wavelengths of 0.1 mm are too long for eye to register.

Please someone can help me to understand this explaination.


thanks,

Here "that" narrows down the identity of the modified noun "wavelength of 0.1 mm" to correctly identify it. So, "that is too long for the eye to be registered" may not be true for all 0.1mm wavelengths.
e,g;
Pick up the book that is written by Gabriel. ==> not all books are written by Gabriel.

thanks for reply!!

meaning is clear when "that " is placed between two nouns such as between "book" and "gabriel" , but how does the restrictive meaning comes out when "that" is present after the two nouns example:
Gabriels has books on latin literature that makes me uninterested in reading.

how does here "that" restricts the books.


thanks,
