Can a noun clause also be noun complement???
In my book it says as subjects, objects, subject complement and adjective complement.

But in when I looked up on the internet it mentions a function as Noun complement.... What should I do??

    A clause can also be a subject, direct and indirect object, subjective and objective complement. All these types of clauses function as nouns.


    What you see is what you get.

    Subjective complement

    What you see is what you get.

    Direct Object

    You will get what you deserve.

    Indirect Objective
