What Are Clauses?

When a group of words comprises, they make a clause that includes a finite and subject-verb. It means there are a single subject and verb. Whether you hide or mentioned the subject in a sentence, keep a verb differentiable and apparent. A clause is a set of words that contains a predicate and a subject. It works as a compound or a complex member. For example; I turn 25 last month (single sentence). When Alex came here, Jennifer slept (Two sentence). When I arrived at her home, I saw Jennifer, and she greeted me well (Three sentence) Types of clause : Dependent clause - It can't function as there are an unfinished thought and idea. The subordinate clause is also another name of the dependent clause. You can easily complete the sentences as dependent clauses help independent to do this. Independent clause - It functions as a meaningful sentence and seems like a general sentence. You can connect two independent clauses in a sentence by coordinators. The connectors such as and, but, so, nor, for*, yet*. For example, She is a wise woman. Drive a car, please. (here the subject is missing or hidden). I want to purchase a car, but there is a lack of savings. (Two independent).
