Grammar Review: Relative Clauses

The grammar preparation quiz covers the information shown below; make sure you study this information carefully before you try to take the quiz. When you are ready, log in to Blackboard to take the quiz. You can take the online quiz as often as you want; the computer will record your most recent score. The quiz will be available until Wednesday midnight.

Relative Pronoun. Like the ablative absolutes that you studied last semester, the relative pronoun is another way to combine two sentences into one. The most important thing to remember is that relative pronouns get their gender and number from the main clause, and their case from the grammatical role they play in the relative clause (subject or object of verb, indirect object, prepositional phrase, etc.).

For the quiz, you will need to supply the correct form of the relative pronoun.

Example: Carissimi, audite verba mea, _______ de isto ribaldo dicam!

Answer: quae
