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 ]

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)
