麻煩達人想請問一個英文文法問題?謝謝~~~

Tiny Singapore, Southeast Asia's most advanced economy, imports

most of its needs because it lacks the natural resources and

agricultural base of its much bigger neighbours.

請問中間那個, Southeast Asia's most advanced economy,是不是屬於同位語用法~~

那我可不可以變成

,which is southeast Asia's most advanced economy,

這要的做用是什麼?

Update:

同位語用法是用來作什麼?

    Southeast Asia s most advanced economy 是同位語,加上which is 也沒錯,只是在文章內會顯得多餘。

    同位語是用來補充說明前面的名詞/代名詞。

    是可以如此改,但which前之逗點須刪除。

    因使用which的句型已不是同位語的句型用法,使用which 是使用關係代名詞的句型。

    which 前面直接加其代表之名詞,此句型是以which........... 修飾(說明、形容)前面之名詞。(此為限定用法)

    如在which前加逗點,則成非限定用法,非限定用法是用於which前非直接加其所修飾名詞之情況,如:

    The house is so huge, which is belong to my uncle.

    上句which 非直接接於其所修飾之house之後,故前須逗點。

    關係代名詞規定是須直接於其所代表(修飾)之名詞後面,如非直接加於其後的情況,則須於關係代名詞前加逗點。

    題目之句子使用which, 該字已直接加於Singapore後,故去除逗點。

    如是同位語則在前面無 which is 之字樣了。

    加上 which is 已成了補述,非同位語了。
