Main and subordinate clauses

Main and subordinate clauses worksheet
A main clause is an independent clause that could stand on its own. They are sometimes followed by a subordinate clause that cannot make sense on its own (it is dependent on the main clause). The main clause doesn’t have to come first in the sentence. Can you underline main clauses in red and subordinate clauses in blue?
