Notes
1. In place names that include city and state (or country), KISS, for the sake of simplicity, considers them a single unit. The alternative requires additional explanation through ellipsis. In this case, "Calcutta, *which is in* India." That explanation is always the same, so it seems silly to require students to make it every time. 
2. KISS considers this clause to be an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
3. "Herself" is an appositive to "she." See KISS Level 5.4 - Appositives.
4. Alternatively, the "is" clause can be considered the main clause and the "inquired" clause can be described as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
5. "Pinta," "Nina," and "Santa Maria" are appositives to "ships."
