Generally, it would be a sentence that has a subject, not a clause. Using the subject as the main thing that the clause is about, the subject of this clause would be the word “subject”. Donnie is an adjective, as is the word favorite. Both of these two words (Donnie and favorite) describe the word subject. Therefore, the subject of this clause is SUBJECT.

(x)= which is Donnie's favorite subject
well I don't know if we can apply the PSR -phrase structure rules- or the X' Theory. But if it is the case, then the wh- word is the subject ==> "which" is the grammatical subject of the clause
however, "subject" is considered as the logical sbj of the clause & the grammatical object of (x)
