A:

A clause usually contains a subject and a verb. So identify the verbs and the verb phrases.

Clauses are joined with the help of conjunctions. So the next step is to identify coordinating and subordinating conjunctions. 

Example: 

Kiran woke up early today because she had her exam. 

Main clause: Kiran woke up early today

Subordinate adverb clause of reason: because she had her exam
