Adjective Clause:

A dependent clause that functions as an adjective in a sentence is called adjective clause.”An adjective clause works like adjective in a sentence. The function of an adjective is to modify (describe) a noun or a pronoun. Similarly a noun clause modifies a noun or a pronoun.

Example;
Harikha wears a jeans which is imported. (The clause “which is imported” in above sentence is an adjective clause because it modifies noun “jeans” in the sentence.)

More Examples.
I met my friend who had studied with me in school..
A mango that smells sweet is tasty.
The book which he bought yesterday is stolen.

Note: An adjective clause always precedes the noun it modifies. Adjective clause begins with relative pronoun (that, who, whom, whose, which, or whose) and is also relative clause. Adjective (relative) clauses can be restrictive clause or nonrestrictive clause
