Jessica ate the cookies that her daughter baked for her.

In one to two sentences, identify the bold words as an independent clause, dependent clause, or phrase, and explain their functions within the sentence. The bold words are "that her daughter baked for her".

I wrote:

The bold wording is an independent clause and the function of the sentence is to explain why she's eating the cookies.

I don't think I said it correctly, can someone check this and tell me if I'm wrong.

  1. If it is
    Jessica ate the cookies that her daughter baked for her.
    then the bold words are the independent clause, and tell what was done (who ate what).

    If it is
    Jessica ate the cookies that her daughter baked for her.
    then the bold words are a dependent clause (adjective), and tell which cookies Jessica ate.

  6. @ninja kid, use one of each type of sentence, while writing about an important day in your life. I suggest you begin with writing about the day first, and worry about the sentence types later. After you write about the day, change some of the sentences to make sure you have every sentence type included.
