Adjective Clauses :
An adjective clause
, like an adjective, describes (or qualifies) a noun or pronoun. An adjective clause is introduced by a relative pronoun (who, whom, which, that) or relative adverb (where, when, why).
The clause usually follows the noun it qualifies.
1. What is the name of the girl who danced last night? (Qualifies GIRL)
2. Here is the book which you want. (Qualifies BOOK)
3. This is the place where the accident happened. (Qualifies PLACE)
4. The boy who is standing there is my nephew. (Qualifies BOY)
5. The film that I told you about is on at the Anand. (Qualifies FILM)
6. The man whom I was travelling with could speak French. (Qualifies MAN)
As in the last three examples above, the adjective clause may divide the main clause.
When the relative pronoun is the object of a verb or preposition, as in the last two examples, it is often left out.
