Teacher Jan provided a link to a useful site. Please study that webpage and then redo your answers. Answers 1, 2, and 3 are wrong. I will analyse the first one. 1-Can you tell us when we shall see the results? subject - you verb - can tell indirect object - us direct object - when we shall see the results Analysis check - Can you tell us today's date? Can you tell us when we shall see the results? So "when we shall see the results" is a direct object just like "today's date" is a direct object.

Teachers don't normally do homework for students. You analyze the grammatical structures and then teachers will correct your work.

#1 is an incorrect sentence. Dependent clauses describe other elements of a sentence. https://webapps.towson.edu/ows/advadjnomclause.htm
