The last four grammar questions of the day [I think]-

idenify the word that the phrase in CAPS modifies:

1.A scientist WHO FINDS ONE NEW SPECIES is very happy
Ans- scientist

2.WHEN SOMEONE FINDS SEVERAL NEW SPECIES AT ONCE, that is rare indeed
Ans- rare??

3.Only a few plants, WHICH MEET STRICT REQUIREMENTS, will go under an electron microscope.
Ans- I'm not sure about this one:: plants?

4.New Jersey then was as warm AS TROPICAL BRAZIL IS TODAY.
Ans- not sure about this one either:: New Jersey?

Thanks!

    The first three are correct. :-) The clause in number 4 is an adverb clause modifying the adjective, "warm."

    I am not so sure about #2. I would choose "that"

    Hmmm, you're right. That could be it!

    I think you're right, Drwls. Although "when" doesn't usually introduce adjective clauses, this may be an exception.
