Clause = a part/section of a sentence
Cause = Something that produces a result (Heavy rain was the cause of the flood.)
- We can use which clauses to express results.
- The which clause must follow the main clause which expresses the cause.
- We use a verb after which
- The two clauses are separated with a comma.
(Bonus: Can you spot the result clause in the previous sentence?)
