  7. 7. Complex and Compound Sentences<br />A simple sentence, also called an independent clause, contains a subject and a verb, and it expresses a complete thought.<br />Example: Mark plays football every afternoon.<br />A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a conjunction.<br />Example: I tried to speak Spanish, and my friend tried to speak English.<br />A complex sentence has an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinator such as because, since, after, although, or when.<br />Example: After they finished studying, John and Sarah went to the movies. <br />
  8. 8. Agreement with Subject-Verb<br />When the subject of a sentence is composed of two or more nouns or pronouns connected by “and,” use a plural verb.<br />When two or more singular nouns or pronouns are connected by “or,” use a singular verb.<br />When a compound subject contains both a singular and a plural noun or pronoun joined by “or” the verb should agree with the part of the subject that is closest to the verb.<br />He and his friends are at the game.<br />The paper or the pen is in the desk.<br />The boy or his friends eat fruit.<br />His friends or the boy eats fruit.<br />
