Im having some dificulty in Identify subordinate clauses in the following sentences. Underline them and say what type they are.
If anyone can assist, fully appreciated. Thanks in advance. From an English passpaper.
(Im a native Spanish speaker).
Example:
0 - He didn't say who he was (noun clause)
1- Do you know where the wine is?
2- He was so handsome that all nurses fell for him.
3- They said that they lived near.
4- Having been a soldier himself, he was no stranger to war.
5- They didn't want to wait any longer.
6- She is not the woman who I talked to last week.
7- The country house, where he had spent most of his childhood, was now his own.
8- My desire, to retire as a school teacher, was no longer possible.
9- I would not say anything, if I were you.
10- If you build it, he will come.

1- Do you know where the wine is? (Noun clause)
2- He was so handsome that all nurses fell for him (adverbial clause with a two part conjunction to join the clauses marked in yellow)
3- They said that they lived near. Complex sentence?
4- Having been a soldier himself, he was no stranger to war.(Complex Sentence)
5- They didn't want to wait any longer (Complex Sentence)
6- She is not the woman who I talked to last week (Noun clause)
7- The country house, where he had spent most of his childhood, was now his own
8- My desire, to retire as a school teacher, was no longer possible adverb/noun?
9- I would not say anything, if I were you (Complex Sentence)
10- If you build it, he will come (Complex sentence)
Please underline the subordinate clauses, then, and we will check them.

Thanks. These have some problems (which I have fixed):

2- He was so handsome that all the nurses fell for him (adverbial clause with a correlative conjunction to join the clause to the adjective)
3- They said that they lived near. -- verb complement
4- Having been a soldier himself, he was no stranger to war.-- Nonfinite sentence adverbial
5- They didn't want to wait any longer -- non-finite verb complement/object
7- The country house, where he had spent most of his childhood, was now his own. (finite adjectival clause)
8- My desire, to retire as a school teacher, was no longer possible. -- nonfinite clause as appositive noun
9- I would not say anything, if I were you (Complex Sentence)
10- If you build it, he will come (Complex sentence)
