①It is +過去分詞+that 從句(found, believed, reported, thought, noted…)
②It is +形容詞+that 從句(clear, possible, likely, natural, certain, fortunate, necessary, strange…)
③It is +名詞(短語) +that 從句(a pity, a shame, an honor, a good idea, a miracle…)
2. 賓語從句。 “that+陳述句”在賓語位置即成賓語從句：

四、一般疑問句可分別充當四種句子成分。 1、一般疑問句語序變成陳述語序。 2、用來whether或if引導。
1.主語從句: does she love dog-walking?
Whether she loves dog-walking or not is unknown.
I don’t know if/whether whether she loves dog-walking
My concern is whether you are a student or not.

If he comes or not makes no difference.
The question is if he will arrive.
2)if 不和or not直接連用，一般不說if or not。但可以說 if … or not 。而whether沒有此限制。
I don’t know if or not he arrives.

PS 最後說明：同位語從句多用that引導，少用whether, if以及代詞或副詞引導，因為我們多是用陳述句補充名詞的內容，而少用一般疑問句或特殊疑問句來補充名詞的內容。
It is a curious paradox that we think of the physical sciences as “hard”， the social sciences as “soft，” and the biological sciences as somewhere in between. This is interpreted to mean that our knowledge of physical system is more certain than our knowledge of biological systems， and these in turn are more certain than our knowledge of social systems. In terms of our capacity of sample the relevant universes， however， and the probability that our images of these universes are at least approximately correct， one suspects that a reverse order is more reasonable
