Language Arts - Dependent and Independent Clauses

Question #1: Identify the dependent clause in the following sentence: "If we are going to make it to the movie on time, we really need to leave right now."

a) If we are going to make it
b) If we are going to make it to the movie on time
c) we really need to
d) we really need to leave right now

My answer is "b" because it looks like it can't stand on its own.

Question #2: Identify the independent clause in the following sentence: "My sister has a smile that lights up the room".

a) My sister has
b) My sister has a smile
c) that lights up
d) that lights up the room

My answer is "b" because that sentence can stand on its own.

Question #3: How do you know the underlined group of words is a dependent clause?

Nancy pulled over to ask for directions because she was lost (the group of words that is underlined is "because she was lost")

a) It can stand on its own as a complete sentence and starts with a conjunction
b) It cannot stand on its own as a complete sentence and begins with a pronoun
c) It can stand on its own as a sentence and begins with a pronoun
d) It cannot stand on its own as a complete sentence and begins with a conjunction.

My answer is D.
