Determine the function of the hilighted dependent clause in each of the followings.
Which one is the person who stole your car?
A. Noun clause
B. Adjective clause
C. Adverb clause
D. None of the above
Correct Answer : B.
The relative pronoun who might have confused you here; however, the clause itself does not answer the question who?, but the question which person?, showing that it modifies the noun person and is acting as an adjective clause.
