How are definitions emphasized?

The definitions in the sentences denote the characteristic of the subject and usually answer the question “What / what / what?” Or “Whose / who / what?”. Underline definitions with a single wavy line.

For example, in the sentence “Kate bought (what?) A big red ball” the definitions would be “big” and “red”, and in the sentence “On the table lay (whose?) Machines pencil case” the definition is “Machines”.

There may be more complex definitions. For example, in the sentence “At the bus stop there was a boy (what?) With curly hair” the definition would be the combination “with curly hair”. In this case, the entire complex definition is underlined in one solid wavy line.
