His, broken, alarm, the, the


His is a possessive pronoun/adjective (technically a determiner).

Broken is describing the clock.

Alarm is describing the clock (what type of clock is it).

The is an article adjective (other articles are a and an). Sometimes the is counted as an adjective, but it is technically a determiner because it doesn't provide actual information about the clock.
