    An adjective clause is a subordinate clause used to modify a noun or a pronoun in the main clause. Pizza, which most people love, is not very healthy. The people whose names are on the list will go to camp. students who are intelligent get good grades. ...................................................................................................................................... Pizza, (which most people love), is not very healthy. The people (whose names are on the list) will go to camp. students (who are intelligent) get good grades. Did this help?

    What in the sentence is being modified and what is modified? "Dad" and "the only one with whom you can discuss this plan".

    Depending on the sentence. Some adjective clauses can be used as sentence fragments.

    Now notice that "adjective clause" is merely a literary device. It's up to the writer to decide whether he'd like to use in a full sentence or any type of writing.
