the adverb clause
questions—How?When?Where?Why? Howmuch? Howoften? It has a subject
and a verb, but it cannot stand alone as a complete thought. It needs to be

|after||although||as||as if||as long as||as soon as||as though||because||before||if||in order that||once||provided that||since||so that||than||though||unless||until||when||whenever||where||wherever||while|
Each adverb clause is underlined in the following sentences:
