skeptical that clause Hi As the days passed, the nation grew increasingly skeptical that any of the minors had survived- let alone all of them. In this sentence, what is the that clause (that any of the minors had survived)? I’d like to know the function. Should I interpret that clause like an object of skeptical? So it’s like the nation is skeptical about the possibility that any of the minors had survived? And if possible could you give me other examples where that clauses are used like this? Thank you.
