How to combine two sentences into one sentence with relative clauses? Also is this written naturally?

  1. The man is carrying a bag.
  2. It's very heavy.

1+2= the man is carrying a bag that very heavy.

    Your solution does not work as written. You're missing an is: "The man is carrying a bag that is very heavy". Without the second is, the sentence is broken and ungrammatical. Alternatively, you can say "The man is carrying a very heavy bag". – Dan Bron Oct 30 '14 at 10:03

We can combine these sentences with a non-defining relative clause as follows:

"The man is carrying a bag, which is very heavy".
