Hi Yves,

I have to admit, I don't know what a reduced relative clause is, but these seem to be two different, but correct ways of saying the same thing.

At least that's my grammatical opinion.

FWIW

Hi again group

Which do you prefer and why:

[a] A custom map is a ZIP file containing the following...

[b] A custom map is a ZIP file which contains the following...

Am I right in thinking that "a" is a âreduced relative clauseâ, which is incorrect in this particular example?

Thanks
