What is the subordinate clause of the following sentence? is it a noun, adjective, or adverb clause?: When he turned on the flashlight, they saw two black bats flying haphazardly through the air.
when he turned on the flashlight is the subordinate clause.It is an adjective clause
Because it starts with one of the subordinating conjunctions that introduces the adverb clause.
notice:that when you find a clause in the beginning of the sentence mostly it is an adverb clause modifies the main verb of the sentence.
