Относительные предложения с дополнительной информацией

Есть более сложное использование относительных предложений, когда мы уже знаем, о ком или о чем идет речь, и даем дополнительную информацию.

Относительные предложения, которые дают нам дополнительную информацию, отделяются запятыми:
He told me about his new job, which he's enjoing very much.
My brother Robert, who lives in Barcelona, invited me to spend holidays over there.
We are staying at the camping near the river, which a friend of ours recommended.

В обоих типах относительных предложений мы употребляем who для людей и which для вещей. Но вы можете использовать that в предложениях с дополнительной информацией. И вы не можете обойтись без who или which:
My sister, who speaks English and French, works as a tourist guide.
A friend of mine told me about his job, which is very interesting for me.
This morning I met Chris, who I hadn't seen for ages.
Мы можем употребить whom для людей если это - дополнение к предложению:

В обоих типах относительных предложений мы можем использовать whose и where:

Можно употреблять предлоги перед whom (для людей) и перед which (для предметов). Так, можно сказать: to whom, with whom, about which, without which и т.д.:

Мы используем all of, most of и т.д. + whom/which:

Аналогично, можно сказать:
