Question 7 Identify the main clause in this sentence:
Their uncle paid for their holiday with their pocket money which they been saving for months.
Their uncle paid for their holiday with their pocket money.
Why are clauses important?
They involve a verb and allow the inclusion of information that is more important. It was bad enough that their uncle had used their pocket money. What really hurt was that they had been saving it for some time.
With their pocket money is a phrase that tells us how the uncle paid for the holiday. The subordinate clause which they had been saving for months provides additional and important information from which we might conclude that this uncle was a bit of a rat.
