    Relative pronouns are those pronouns that introduce a subordinate clause.

    This is an excellent site for learning about them.

    In the first sentence, the pronoun WHO is the subject of the verb STUDIES. In the second sentence, the pronoun THAT is the object of the verb WROTE.

    So the answer for #1 is subject
    and #2 is direct object?
