Adjective Clause

 


Adjective Clause
is a subordinate clause which does the work of an adjective. That is, that group of words with subject and predicate gives more information about noun.

Examples-
a.  The student, who scored good marks, has been appreciated.
b.   He tamed a dog, which is like a tiger.

In (a), ‘who scored good marks’ is a clause.
[ subject- who, predicate- scored good marks (verb- scored)]
It qualifies the noun ‘student’. So it is an Adjective Clause.

In (b), ‘which is like a tiger’ is a clause.
[Subject- which, predicate- is like a tiger (verb- is)]
It qualifies the noun ‘dog’. So it is an Adjective Clause.
