Question and answer
Q: Identify the adjective clause and the word it modifies. The tree whose branches had died had to be cut down
A: 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 ]
