about using a clause

Postby notatall » Fri Jan 18, 2013 10:02 am

Please take a look at the following sentence, teachers. Can you tell me if the following sentence is correct grammatically?
“2012 advertising figures for the Middle East and Africa region spending grew 55.8%, an increase of 38.4% in Eastern Europe.”
If so, how many clauses does the sentence have? And If “an increase of 38.4% in Eastern Europe” is one of the clauses, then where is the verb in it?
Thank you

Correct.

One clause: 'an increase...Europe' is an appositive noun phrase.
