Homework Help: English: clauses

Posted by Lesley on Monday, February 19, 2007 at 5:18pm.

we have to to identify the dependent clause in this sentance and then tell wether the clause is an adverb, adjective, or noun clause.

"Who knows what the future will bring?"

In this sentance i know where the dependent clause starts but other than that i'm confused.


The independent clause is "Who knows"

so everything else is dependent clause.
NOW, ask yourself what is "what the future will bring" doing in that sentence. Does it describe the subject?
Does it tell when, where, how about the verb? Or does it take the place of a noun?

If you need further help, please repost.

The dependent clause is:
what the future will bring.

It's a noun and used as the direct object of the verb "knows." It answers WHAT after the verb in the independent clause.

Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!
