  • the correct answer would be D. An adverb clause begins with a subordinating conjunction and includes subject and predicate.
  • The correct answer is D) because she enjoys year-round sports. An adverb clause is a subtype of a subordinate clause, meaning that it cannot exist on its own, outside of the main, independent clause.
    A cannot be correct because this is not a clause - it doesn't have a finite verb (infinitives, such as 'to live' are non-finite), which means that it is a phrase.
    B is a weird sentence fragment, it isn't an adverb clause.
    C is also a sentence fragment, the sentence is incomplete.
