  1. Dependent clauses will have introductory words that are easy to identify:

    when, if, because, since, although, if, and others (to make adverb clauses)

    who, whom, whose, which, that - relative pronouns (to make adjective clauses)

    Try starting the revised sentence with "When" and then add the second clause and finally the first clause. What do you get?
