Question:

“Although Ted had an impressive education, he had little experience working with individuals, which made him less effective at relating to them.” Which kinds of clauses does this sentence contain?

A Two dependent clauses and one independent clause
Explaination

“Although Ted had an impressive education” is a dependent or subordinate clause, introduced by the subordinating conjunction “Although” and modifying the independent clause “he had little experience working with individuals.” The second dependent clause is the relative clause “which made him less effective at relating to them,” introduced by the relative pronoun “which” and modifying “he had little experience.” Hence there is not just one dependent clause, or none, nor are there two independent clauses.
