Dear Student
A relative pronoun is a type of pronoun that often introduces dependent (or relative) clauses in sentences. They also can stand alone as the subject or object of a sentence.
There is a specific list of relative pronouns, and here they are: who, whoever, whom, whomever, that, which, when, where, and whose. (Sometimes, what, which, and where can serve as relative pronouns.
Here are two examples of how relative pronouns are used in sentences. Let's start with the simple sentence:
The fly landed.
Now let's build it up with a relative clause:
The fly that had been buzzing around Sam's head landed on the cake.
