Choose the answer that best identifies the phrase in CAPS.

1.These flower fossils, WHICH CAME FROM A VACANT LOT, are the best that have ever been discovered anywhere in the world.
A.adjective clause

I think it might be either A or B

2.These fossils are important, and scientists are interested in them BECAUSE PLANTS CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THEIR FLOWERS.
A.adjective clause

    1. Yes, it is either A. or B. Check these sites to clarify which it is.

    2. Check the above sites.

    So after seeing those sites I think the answers are:
    1.B
    2.A?
    3.A or C...? I think it's A

    Please study these carefully from the above sites.

    "Recognize an adjective clause when you see one.
    An adjective clause—also called an adjectival or relative clause—will meet three requirements:

    First, it will contain a subject and verb.
    Next, it will begin with a relative pronoun [who, whom, whose, that, or which] or a relative adverb [when, where, or why].
    Finally, it will function as an adjective, answering the questions What kind? How many? or Which one?


    Adverb clauses begin with subordination conjunctions
    after, before, until, while, because, since, as, so that, in order that, if, unless, whether, though, although, even though, where.


    Number 3 is a little tricky. The clause is the direct object of the verb. What do you think it is now?

    You haven't answered the first two right, yet.

    For 3, direct objects are not either adjectives or adverbs.

  • Grammar - , Friday, May 8, 2009 at 8:51pm

    Must be C
