  1. Great job!

    The only correction is "that" in these lines is a conjunction, not a pronoun.

  4. It seems to me, unless it functions as an expletive, "that" is much closer to being a pronoun than a conjunction. Notice that you can replace the word "that" with the pronoun "which" and the meaning is essentially the same. Conjunctions join parallel words or phrases; here we have nouns and verbs --jaws bite, and claws catch.
