I'm working on an English assignment and I've answered most of them, but I'm not too sure about these ones.. If you could check over my answers that would be amazing! Thank you so much in advance :)

In the following sentences identify the main clause. Find the subordinate clause and tell if it is used as noun, adjective, or adverb.

1. Most of the teachers are Americans, though a few come from England and France.

main clause: Most of the teachers are Americans
Subordinate clause type: noun

2. We believe that Christianity is the key to a better world.

Main clause: We believe
Subordinate clause type: noun

3. The prince's chief interest was tennis, which he was just learning to play.

Main clause: The prince's chief interest was tennis
Subordinate clause type: noun

Identify the use of the italicized noun clause.

4. [What Scripture tells us] should be the basis for our behavior.

object of preposition
subject <--- this would be a subject?
direct object

5. The game will be won by [whoever plays best.]

subject complement
object of preposition <--- I think this one is an OP

6. I found [what I was looking for in my purse.]

Identify the word(s) that the italicized adverb clause modifies. (I'm kinda iffy on these ones.. not too sure..)

7. The bus will pick up the children [when school is out.]

modified word: bus?

8.The child burned his hand [because he forgot that the burner was still on.]

modified word: I think this one would be hand?
