While they were discussing the movie, their teacher entered the class.

Main Clause: Their teacher entered the class.

Subordinate Clause: While they were discussing the movie

here the sentences have become have become independent and how does it satisfy the definition of

subordinating conjunction???

These conjunctions join a subordinate clause with a main clause. Simply speaking, a subordinate or dependent clause is one that cannot stand as a separate sentence, while a main or an independent clause is one that can stand as a separate sentence.

For example:

Gagan decided that he would walk to office if it did not rain that morning.

In this case, the main and the subordinate clauses are as follows:

Gagan decided that he would walk to office. (Main Clause)

The meaning is clear. Hence, this clause stands by itself as a sentence.

If it did not rain that morning (Subordinate Clause)

The meaning is not clear. Hence, this clause does not stand by itself as a sentence. It depends on the main clause for its meaning to become clear
