Restrictive relative clause or not?

Restrictive relative clause or not?

Relative clauses may provide necessary or additional information. If they are necessary we call them restrictive relative clauses – if not they are non-restrictive.

Example of a restrictive clause: The girl who took my wallet is still not caught.

Example of a non-restrictive clause: My birthday, which I celebrated with my friends, was a great success.
