1. Who do you think will win the biggest prize this year?

 

Who do you think is a noun clause.

will win is a verb phrase.

biggest--Adjective in a superlative degree

prize-- a noun.

this year is an adverb.


2 Stop talking and listen !

It is an imperative sentence.


3. The old woman who lived in a shoe made her breakfast.

Who lived in a shoe made her breakfast is an adjectival clause modifying the noun "woman".

 

4. If I were a blackbird, I would be singing all day.

This is a conditional statement.

If + simple past............Subject+ would +present form of the action word.

 

5. If I had known you were coming, I would have baked you a cake.

 

This is also a conditional statement. 

Grammatical pattern: If + Past perfect............... Subject + would have/could have/should have+ past participle.
