Question and answer
Identify the adjective clause and the word it modifies. The tree whose branches had died had to be cut down
An adjective clause—also called an adjectival or relative clause—will meet three requirements: ¦First, it will contain a subject and verb. ¦Next, it will begin with a relative pronoun [who, whom, whose, that, or which] or a relative adverb [when, [ where, or why]. ¦Finally, it will function as an adjective, answering the questions What kind? How many? or Which one? The adjective clause will
follow one of these two patterns: relative pronoun or adverb + subject + verb relative pronoun as subject + verb Here are some examples: Whose big, brown eyes pleaded for another cookie Whose = relative pronoun; eyes = subject; pleaded = verb. Why Fred cannot stand sitting across from his sister Melanie Why = relative adverb; Fred = subject; can stand = verb [not, an adverb, is not officially part of the verb]. That bounced across the kitchen floor That = relative pronoun functioning as subject; bounced = verb. Who hiccupped for seven hours afterward Who = relative pronoun functioning as subject; hiccupped = verb ]

It is not right to make a promise unless you are sure you can fulfill the promise
Weegy: Absolutely right. User: Analyze the sentence to determine the main clause and the subordinate clause. Then choose the function of the subordinate clause. Weegy: The Main Clause The main clause (sometimes called an independentclause) must contain: + subject verb The subject is involved in the action The verb is the action Consider this sentence… Diane kicked Diane kicked the habit. Q. [ Where is the subject and where is the verb? MAIN CLAUSE The sentence expresses a complete thought It contains a subject and a verb EVERY SENTENCE MUST HAVE ONE. The Subordinate Clause Whenever you place a subordinateconjunction in front of a subject and a verb you will no longer have a complete thought. The subordinate clause is sometimes referred to as a dependentclause. FUNCTIONS OF SUBORDINATE CLAUSES What is the role/function of the subordinate clause in the sentence? (1) NOMINAL CLAUSES are subordinate clauses used in typical noun phrase functions. In other words, you can find nominal clauses used as Subjects, Objects, Object Complements, and Subject Complements. They also occur in prepositional phrases after the preposition as a prepositional complement and in adjective phrases as postadjectival modifiers. What I want is a cup of hot cocoa. (subject) Watching television keeps them out of mischief. (subject) I noticed that she spoke English with an American accent. (direct object) He likes to relax. (direct object) He gave whoever asked for it a copy of his latest book. (indirect object) I'm thinking of going abroad for a year. (prepositional object) That's where to go for your next vacation. (subject complement) I knew her to be reliable. (object complement) I'm tired of being treated like a child. (prepositional complement) I'm very eager to meet you. (postadjectival modifier) (2) ADVERBIAL CLAUSES are subordinate clause used as adverbials in the sentence. TIME Buy your ticket as soon as you reach the station. Wait until you're called.

Analyze the sentence to determine the main clause and the subordinate clause. Then choose the function of the subordinate clause.
Weegy: A clause is often defined as a group of related words that contains both a subject and a predicate. Like a phrase, a subordinate (or dependent) clause is not a sentence. [ [ The subordinate clause functions as a single part of speech--as a noun, an adjective, or an adverb. Notice the relationship of the sentences below to the clauses that follow. Therefore, Slips of the tongue often show; would be the subordinate clause. ] ] (More)
