Representations of reference link are not unified. Most reference links to clause (table) number, say X, are in the form "Clause X" ("Table X") capitalized, and subsection Y.Y.Y is referenced with its number only in the form "Y.Y.Y". Whether they are parenthesized or not depends on the context. However there are some notations "(Z)" consisting of only a number Z in parentheses to confer Clause or Table number Z.

Proposed resolution:

Change "(10)" to "(Clause 10)".
