a: Dependent clause ~
b: a railway car

a: A dependent clause ~
b: a child

What: "Although each of the dependent clauses shown on the first chart in this section has a subject and a verb, it does not express a complete thought. As a result, it cannot stand alone. A dependent clause is like a child; it's unable to support itself but able to cause a lot of problems if crossed."
