    Think about WHERE each clause is placed in relation to the verb of the sentence.

    BEFORE the verb? It's probably a subject.
    #3 -- yes, it's the subject.

    AFTER the verb? It's probably a direct object (if the verb is an action verb) or a predicate nominative (if the verb is a linking verb).
    #2 = ??

    English depends a great deal on WORD ORDER (the order of the words in a sentence) for meaning.
