    What is the underlined clause?

  • Grammar -

    Oh, I just got to that question. The underlined clause is "which we saw at the aquarium last summer."

    I believe the answer is "adjective clause" because the clause modifies "movie about whales."

  • Grammar -

    Yes it is correct. I submitted the test and it was correct.

    "Which best describes the underlined clause?
    I liked the movie about whales, which we saw at the aquarium last summer. "

    The answer is "adjective clause."
