Considering that the world is so intricate, we are not to be surprised that science has progressed slowly.

What kind of clause is ‘that science has progressed slowly‘ and what is it modifying?

With whatever luxuries a bachelor may be surrounded, he will always find his happiness incomplete, unless he has a wife and children.

Can a preposition(with) be used in an adverb clause before a subordinate conjunction(whatever) as in this sentence? Also please clarify, using the adjective “incomplete’ after the noun ‘happiness”.

Thanks Marek Guman. Do all the indefinite pronouns if modified by an adjective, the adjective come after indefinite pronoun or it’s only few of the indefinite pronouns?

How are ‘something’ and ‘else’ functioning in this sentence?

I have something else for you.

Thinking good thoughts precedes good actions.

Why is the verb ‘precedes’ used in singular when the noun ‘thoughts’ is in plural?
Topic: Object complement

A complement may be an adjective, noun or adverbial. So, can an object complement be an adverbial.

1. I found the guard sleeping in the barn.
2. I found Jack working at the desk.

Can we consider sleeping in the barn and working at the desk an object complement as adverbial?
