What is a Clause?
Clauses are just like simple sentences. They must contain at least a subject and a verb, but also may have an independent or dependant adjective or noun. There are four types of clauses- main clauses, subordinate clauses, relative clauses, and noun clauses
The relative clause is also known as an adjective clause. It cannot stand alone as a sentence because it doesn't have a complete thought. The relative clause must have three components in order to be a complete relative clause:
1. Must have a subject and verb.
2. Have a relative pronoun or relative adverb.
3. It also works the same as an adjective when asked "What kind?", "How many?" or "Which one?"
