What is the subject of this clause? which is Donnie's favorite subject

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles


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.
