A clause is a group of words that includes a subject and a verb. It means a clause has a verb
which is actively doing a verb(action) . A clause can be distinguished from a phrase, which
does not contain a subject and a verb.
Clause are of two types : Independent Clause and Dependent clause
An independent clause is one which expresses a complete thought and can be a standalone
sentence.While a dependent clause is usually a supporting part of a sentence, and it cannot
stand by itself as a meaningful sentence/idea.
Examples : 1. Rita went to market after she watched the movie.
In this sentence , ‘Rita went to market’ is a complete sentence in itself hence it is a
independent clause. While ‘After she watched the movie’ is a dependent clause as it can not
be a complete sentence or idea, which means it is dependent on the first sentence.
2. I went to the Market : Independent Clause
