    object

    What is "such rules" in the sentence below? The object of the sentence?

    The court ruled that such rules could not in themselves be regarded as constituting a restriction of Article 5.

    Thanks.

    This is a complex sentence with a main clause ‘The court ruled’ and a dependent clause ‘such rules could not in themselves be regarded as constituting a restriction of Article 5.’ This clause is introduced by the relative pronoun ‘that’.
    ‘such rules’ is the subject of the dependent clause.
