Correct answer: (b) plate

Your answer was: correct
_________________________

Hello,

A "that" relative pronoun is used in the non-defining relative clause of the sentence of this Question 4. According to Author Alan Townend, "that" cannot be used in a non-defining relative clause (ESL Lesson: Relative Pronoun--Particular--

So, why does this Question 4 contradict Author Alan Townend's note?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
