Nichole, sentence 3 adds a participial phrase, not a clause.

Diana, your second sentence and third sentences both add a prepositional phrase, not a clause.

Brad, your second sentence adds a prepositional phrase. Your third sentence subordinates the initial clause rather than adding adding an independent one.

This looks like something that could use further review.
