ADJECTIVE CLAUSES Quiz

Remember!

An adjective clause, or relative clause, modifies a noun or pronoun. Adjective clauses can be restrictive (essential to a sentence’s meaning) or nonrestrictive (nonessential to the sentence’s meaning). Nonrestrictive clauses are set off by commas.

  • Restrictive: The boys who want a copy have added their names to the list. 

  • Nonrestrictive: The four broken containers, which are stacked in the corner, need to be returned.

With relative pronouns - An adjective clause generally begins with a relative pronoun (that, which, who, whom, whose) that connects the clause to the noun or pronoun it modifies. The relative pronoun shows the relationship between the clause and the antecedent.

With relative adverbs - Adjective clauses can also start with the relative adverbs where, when, and why. They connect the dependent clause to a noun in the sentence. The relative adverb modifies the verb in the dependent clause.
