Adjective Clause

Slide 2:

An A djective C lause is a dependent clause which takes the place of an adjective in another clause or phrase. Like an adjective, an adjective clause modifies a noun or pronoun, answering questions like “which?” or “what kind of?”

Slide 3:

In formal writing, an A djective C lause begins with the relative pronouns “who(m),” “that,” or “which.” In informal writing or speech, you may leave out the relative pronoun when it is not the subject of the adjective clause, but you should usually include the relative pronoun in formal, academic writing .

Adjective Clause also is the Relative Clause in this book. There are some examples: The man who did the robbery has been caught. The chair (which) I sat in was a broken one.
