like that Okay here we go For he not only

00:20

beholds intensely the present as it is is what kind

00:23

of claws and here are potential answers are relative Okay

00:29

Is it a relative adjective claws while relative and restrictive

00:32

clauses limit the possibilities or implications of what they modified

00:36

For example if you say all students who do well

00:38

on the test will achieve advanced placement the claws who

00:41

do well on the test is the essential modifier Without

00:45

it we just have all students will achieve advanced placement

00:48

and that's Not what we want Since the sentence in

00:50

question doesn't contain a relative or restrictive klaus we can

00:54

cross out a night What about b is our sense

00:56

A relative adverb clause Well a relative adverb klaus What

01:00

again Put restrictions on the subject or object it is

01:02

modifying The restriction might come in the form of a

01:05

time or place specifications like of the author said for

01:08

he not on ly beholds intensely the present as it

01:11

is when he feels like it yeah that would make

01:14

the sentence more of a relative adverb Claws are sentenced

01:17

connects to different ideas that the author says poets can

01:20

consider simultaneously the sentence doesn't put any restrictions on when

01:24

and how the poet can do so So b is

01:26

in our answer either How about c Is the sentence

01:29

an independent klaus Well independent clauses are more like the

01:31

clauses in the following sentence many young people hate age

01:35

restrictions on youtube even when they can figure out how

01:38

to get around them the clauses on either side of

01:41

even when could each stand alone hence their independence If

01:45

we just had that not only part of the sentence

01:47

and didn't follow it up with a but then the

01:49

sense wouldn't make any sense pence she's off our list

01:53

is the clause non restrictive Well as we know it's

01:56

not relative or restrictive but we can't really consider the

01:59

claws technique thickly non restrictive a non restrictive klaus will

02:02

often add non essential information if you removed the extra

02:05

Information The meaning of the sense would not change all

02:08

the information in the original quote is essential sum No

02:11

non restrictive clauses here Well our last remaining option is

02:14

correlative klaus We talked earlier about how the author is

02:17

connecting two ideas Those ideas are beholding intensely the present

02:22

as it is and beholding the future in the present

02:25

Well those may sound like lines from a time travel

02:27

flick What they actually tell us is that the pull

02:29

it in the author's words does both of these things

02:31

at the same time What makes the claws correlative is

02:35

the use of the not on ly but also tool

02:38

also is implied We didn't even have to see it

02:41

to know it was there just like that monster who

02:43

lives under our bed So yeah just remember the correlation

02:46

isn't cause ality and you're good to go and while

02:49

you're at it maybe rent the movie causalities of war 00:02:52.373 --> [endTime] it's a good one
