Clauses Exercises With Answers for Class 6 CBSE PDF

A clause is defined as a group of related words that contains a subject and predicate (verb). Example:- He came. There are two major types of clauses main (or independent) clause and subordinate (or dependant) clause. A sentence may have one clause or two clauses.

A sentence with two clauses is linked by conjunction if, but, because, so, although, before, when, while, wherever.
Example:

  • I met the boy
  • who had helped me
  • Main Clause
  • Dependent Clause

Rohan is buying a mobile phone which looks very nice.

The above sentence has two clauses “Rohan is buying a mobile” and “which looks very nice”. The clause “Rohan is buying a mobile” expresses a complete thought and can stand as a sentence alone. Such a clause is called a main or independent clause. While the clause “which looks very nice” does not express a complete thought and can’t stand as a sentence. It depends on another clause (main clause) to express a complete idea. Such a clause is called a subordinate or dependent clause.
