The correct answer is b. The audience applauded the ambassador, who spoke for half an hour. A relative clause is a part of the sentence that is dependent on something else. May not be alone. For example, while "The audience applauded the ambassador," can function as its own sentence, "that spoke during a half an hour," you can't. Is dependent the first part of the sentence. In addition, relative clauses to describe what is dependent. For example, "that spoke during a half an hour" is to directly describe "the ambassador".
