Exam: Grammar & Vocabulary!

As I told you, I´m leaving these two parts of the exam from last week. (The grammar with the rephrasings and the vocabulary). If you want the other two parts (I mean the "reading" with the questions and the phonetics and so on, let me know and I will give you a copy in class).
En relación a la foto, os quería comentar (se que es el "monotema" propio de segundo bachillerato: ahora llamada "PAEG"), que ya se nos informará de la propuesta que al final se elige, para ver si hay algún pequeño cambio en los ejercicios; no os preocupéis).

A) DEFINING RELATIVE CLAUSES: These expressions couldn´t be left out.
-Louisiana was seriously damaged by Hurricane Katrina WHICH left thousands of people homeless.
-He is the only person WHO understands me.

(In these 2examples the relative pronun functions as "subject", so in this case it cannot be omitted)
-I have lost my sunglasses (WHICH) I bought yesterday. (In this case, WHICH functions as "object), so it can be omitted)

B)NON-DEFINING RELATIVE CLAUSES: They give extra information about the noun they qualify. They use commas1!!!
-Nadal,WHO won his sixth Grand Slam tournament, defeated Federer last Sunday in Australia.
-Obama, WHO is the forty-fourth president of the USA, is the first African-American man ever elected.
