parenthetical words

Hello,


As the sentence says,"Don't hesitate to do what you think is right."

Is "you think" a parenthetical phrase?


Thanks for responding to my question!!

Don't hesitate to do what you think is right.

No, "you think" is not parenthetical. It could be dropped but it may change the meaning. "What is right" for some people may well be different to "what you think is right".

It would all depend on the context.
