    Default Using adjective clauses to modify pronouns

    Hi teachers, help me please! I am stuck with the bellow sentences.

    (a) There is someone I want you to meet.
    (b) Everything he said was pure nonsense.
    (c) Anyone who wants to come is welcome.

    (1)Could you please find out where the adjective clauses are?

    (2)Could you please kindly enough and find out the adjective clauses which modify indefinite pronouns?

    Thank you very much.

    I'll give you some clues. :D

    Indefinite pronouns: someone, everything, anyone
    Adjective clauses: a group of words that has 'who' or 'that' followed by a verb (Note, look back at your examples). You can often delete the adjective clause,

    There is someone.
    Everything was pure nonsense.
    Anyone is welcome.

    All the best,
