Question and answer
A subordinate clause...? what is it? has a subject., has a predicate., expresses a complete thought. or, can stand alone as a sentence.?
Recognize a subordinate clause when you see one. A subordinate clause—also called a dependent clause—will begin with a subordinate conjunction or a relative pronoun and will contain both a subject and a verb. [ This combination of words will not form a complete sentence. It will instead make a reader want additional information to finish the thought. Here is a list of subordinate
conjunctions: after although as because before even if even though if in order that once provided that rather than since so that than that though unless until when whenever where whereas wherever whether while why Here are your relative pronouns: that which whichever who whoever whom whose whosever whomever Now take a look at these examples: After Amy sneezed all over the tuna salad After = subordinate conjunction; Amy = subject; sneezed = verb. Once Adam smashed the spider Once = subordinate conjunction; Adam = subject; smashed = verb. Until Mr. Sanchez has his first cup of coffee Until = subordinate conjunction; Mr. Sanchez = subject; has = verb. Who ate handfuls of Cheerios with his bare hands Who = relative pronoun; Who = subject; ate = verb. Remember this important point: A subordinate clause cannot stand alone as a sentence because it does not provide a complete thought. The reader is left wondering, "So what happened?" A word group that begins with a capital letter and ends with a period must contain at least one main clause. Otherwise, you will have written a fragment, a major error. After Amy sneezed all over the tuna salad. So what happened? Did Amy throw it down the garbage disposal or serve it on toast to her friends? No complete thought = fragment. Once Adam smashed the spider. So what happened? Did Belinda cheer him for his bravery or lecture him on animal rights? No complete thought = fragment. Until Mr. ]

can you help find the distance between these points. R(-1, 0), S(8, 6)? v(26), v(85)or is it , v(117)?
Weegy: The distance between R(-1, 0) and S(8, 6) is 9 units along the x axis and 6 units along the y axis. Using pythagoras, the total distance is the square root of (81 + 36) = sqrt (117) = 10.8. (More)

Dad brought presents for her and me. This is grammatically correct. Both her and me are objective pronouns.

False

This is correct. There is a way that you can always tell if the pronouns are correct... For example, this sentence would appear like this.... Dad brought presents for me. Or Dad brought presents for I. Which was is correct? ME, that is right, so with this being said, the sentence, Dad brought presents for her and me. Is correct. Thanks.
