I came across this sentence today but am not sure if this is a reduced relative clause.

These six categories are also consistent with those used to group the multiple-choice questions included in this chapter.

Can that/which are be understood to be in the sentence?

If the above sentence is correct,and since that/which represents those
can the relative clause be viewed as:

is correct.


Those are used to group the multiple-choice questions included in this chapter.

Extracted from the context, it is still correct with a similar meaning.

    Yes, you may :) I work for 2 years in an environment where colleagues have difficulties communicating in English (and that is the only common language). To facilitate communication, I "simplify" my English - for the sake of communication. I am aware that I make more and more mistakes because of this, but with all attention paid, some (mistakes) get into the wild. Thank you for noticing. – virolino Mar 26 at 10:41
