    Could you tell me if Mr.Brown gone to the bank for a saving account or a checking account?

    Could you tell me if Mr.Brown knows what,s the rate of interest?

    Can you identify the noun phrases yourself?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Noun Clause

    No, a noun phrase is a word or group of words that acts a a subject or object.

    Any clause will have at least one noun phrase and one verb phrase (although some people use different vocabulary).

    The main subject of the sentence will be one noun phrase. If there is an embedded clause, it will have a noun phrase for the subject of the embedded clause. In this case, there are also two objects.
