1. ADJ The paintings we saw at the museum were beautiful.

You need to review your identification of the various clauses in these sentences. For example, I have used red to identify the independent clause (I would call this the main clause) in your first example. The subordinate clause is identified in violet.

The paintings we saw at the museum were beautiful.

I suggest that you revise your answers in the light of our comments, and post them again.
