SUBORDINATE CLAUSE EXERCISE


SUBORDINATE CLAUSE EXERCISE
Clauses that are introduced by a subordinating conjunction are called subordinate clauses. A subordinate clause cannot stand alone. It has to be attached to an independent clause.
In English, there are mainly three types of subordinate clauses:adjective clause, adverb clause and noun clause.
Underline the subordinate clause in the following sentences.
1. As he was not there, I could not speak to him.
2. I waited for him until he came.
3. We eat so that we may live.
4. I don’t know whether he is innocent.
5. If you eat too much, you will fall ill.
6. I am sure that you are wrong.
7. The teacher said that honesty is the best policy.
8. Tell me where you have put my books.
9. The man who committed the theft last night has been caught.
10. It is difficult to understand why he distrusts his own children.
