This seems like a good page on the relative clause:
Here are some good examples that show how the relative pronoun is left out creating a 'contact clause':
Combine the sentences using relative clauses without relative pronouns (contact clauses).
1. We bought a car last week. The car is blue.
The car we bought last week is blue. (that is left out)
2. The girl is a singer. We met her at the party.
The girl we met at the party is a singer (who/that is left out)
There are many tests on this site also:
I hope this helps.
