    Tony realized that "Maria was not going to show up".

    A.) noun clause
    B.) adverb clause
    C.) adjective clause
    D.) independent clause

    I think it is A for this one?
    ------------------
    I do not think it is A.
    "Maria was not going to show up"
    Is a complete sentence and can stand independently of the rest.
    -----------------------------


    Gripping the rail, "Lindsey stepped onto the ice".

    A.) independent clause
    B.) adjective clause
    C.) adverb clause
    D.) noun clause

    I think it is C?
    ----------------------------
    Again, that is a complete sentence that could stand independently.
    --------------------------------

    The basket "that she is holding" is made from palm fronds.

    A.) independent clause
    B.) adjective clause
    C.) adverb clause
    D.) noun clause

    ------------------
    I could say
    The basket, "green", is made from palm fronds.
    It is an adjective, describing a noun.
    --------------------------------

  • English - , Monday, December 16, 2013 at 4:31pm

    No, the second one is not D!!
