the noun clause

the noun clause

object of the preposition, or
a predicate nominative. This type of clause often starts with any one of these
words—how, that, what, whatever, when, where, whether, which, whichever, who,
whoever, whom, whomever, whose, and why.

The noun clause is underlined in each of these sentences. Its function within
the sentence follows in the parentheses.

(direct object)
Will these older folks recall how they were part of a terrific
generation?
(direct object)

tomorrow morning in the library. (indirect object)

    Fitness Stretching

    Wrist Radial Deviator and Flexor Stretch

    Arm, Wrist, and Hand Stretches:

    Method:
    Kneel on the floor. Flex both wrists, and place the palm of each hand on the floor. Point the fingers outward on a line perpendicular to the midline of the body. While keeping the elbows straight, lean backward (buttocks to the heels), keeping the palms flat on the floor.

    Affected Body Part:
    Most-stretched muscles: Flexor carpi radialis, flexor digitorum profundus, flexor digitorum superficialis, palmaris longus.
    Lesser-stretched muscles: Flexor carpi ulnaris, flexor digiti minimi brevis, flexor pollicis longus, extensor carpi radialis brevis, extensor carpi radialis longus, extensor pollicis brevis.

    The closer the hands are to the knees, the easier it is to keep the palms on the floor. The farther the hands are in front of the knees, however, the greater the applied stretch. The distance each hand is away from the body’s midline also influences stretch intensity. The farther away from the midline, the greater the stretch.
