由连词that引起的主语从句: 这类主语从句在大多数情况下都放到句子后部去, 而用代词it做形式上的主语:
That we need more equipment is quite obvious.
It is impossible that I may not able to come.

It’s good you’re so considerate.
It’s a pity you missed such a fine talk.
由连接代词或连接副词(或whether)引起的主语从句: 这类主语从句, 也可以放到句子后部去, 前面用it做形式上的主语.

It is still a question when we shall have our sports meet.
Whether he will join us won’t make too much difference.

2宾语从句: 和主语从句及表语从句一样, 宾语从句也有以上三类.
Tell me what you want.

Have you decided whom you are to nominate as your candidate.
能跟这类宾语从句的常见动词有: see, say, tell, ask, answer, know, decide, find out, imagine, suggest, doubt, wonder, show, discover, discuss, understand, inform, advise等. 这种动词后也常用whether或if引导的从与作宾语:
I don’t know whether these figure are accurate.
I’m wondering if the letter is overweight.

Please advise me which book I should read first.
Whether that is a good solution depends on how you look at it.

b) 用that引导的从句作宾语的情形最为普遍, 在很多动词如boast, say, think, insist, wish, hope, suppose, see, believe, agree, acknowledge, admit, deny, expect, explain, confess, order, command, suspect, dream, suggest, propose, know, mean, notice, prefer, request, require, report, urge, 以及doubt的否定和疑问式后面都可以用它.
