Actually there is no noun clause here, Sanjay;


"The socks were under the bed" is an Independent Clause


"that I wanted" is an adjective clause describing the Subject of the Independent Clause, "socks"


The = Article

sock = Noun

that = (relative) Pronoun

I = Pronoun

wanted = Verb (action, intransitive)

were = Verb (linking)

under = Preposition

the = Article

bed. = Noun (object of the preposition)
