Post-modifier Adjective Clause Post-modifier Adjective clauses start with who, which, whose, that after a noun which it modifies. These adjectives are post modifiers. An adjective clause is a dependent clause that takes the place of an adjective in another clause or phrase. Like an adjective, an adjective clause modifies a noun or pronoun, answering questions such as which? or what kind of? Consider the following examples: the blue tie the tie which is blue matches with shirt. [The tie matches the shirt. The tie is blue.] he still wears the tie that you had gifted. [You had gifted the tie. He still wears the tie.] the child whose parents are daily wagers is a fast learner.
