Transcript

  • 1. Simple, Compound, Complex Sentences Review Quiz
  • 2. The Rules  A simple sentence consists of one independent clause. An independent clause contains a subject and a predicate and expresses a complete thought. – During the game, Jasmine scored 23 points, had 6 assists, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocked shots. – Tim is a really good pitcher and hitter.
  • 3. Simple Sentence  It can have a FANBOYS in it; just check to see if what comes both before and after the FANBOYS are complete sentences. If they are, it can’t be a simple sentence.  It can have a comma in it with a series, some interrupting information offset by two commas, or an introductory prepositional phrase with a comma.
  • 4. The Rules  A compound sentence consists of two or more independent clauses that are connected by a comma and a coordinating conjunction (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) —or a semicolon instead of FANBOYS – I like to be very active in my life, and my favorite sports are football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and hockey.
  • 5. Compound Sentences  They have two complete sentences that can stand on their own as two independent clauses  The key is to find one of the FANBOYS with a comma before it and a complete sentence on both sides of the FANBOYS.  It may also be identified by having a semicolon without FANBOYS joining the two sentences.
  • 6. The Rules  A complex sentence consists of an independent clause and one or more dependent clauses. Using a subordinating conjunction (because, although, if, etc.) creates a dependent clause. Using a relative pronoun (who, whom, that, or which) creates a dependent clause. – I would really love my English class if we didn’t have to do so much writing.
  • 7. Complex Sentences  These also consist of more than one clause: a dependent and an independent.  The key is to find the subordinating conjunction in the sentence which is either at the beginning with a comma in the middle of the sentence before the independent clause, or in the middle with no comma and an independent clause at the beginning of the complex sentence.
  • 8. Subordinating Conjunctions          A fter, although, as, as far as, as if, as long as, as soon as, as though B ecause, before, besides E ven though, even if, ever since I f, in order that S ince, so that T han, that, though U nless, upon, until W hen, whenever, where, wherever, whether, while ABE IS TUW
  • 9. What kind of sentence is below?  Ever since I started the 7 th grade at Granite Oaks Middle School, I have changed so much as a person.
  • 10. Answer  It is a Complex sentence because “ever since” serves as a subordinating conjunction that connects the introductory dependent clause to the independent clause.
  • 11. What kind of sentence is below?  I like pizza, chicken wings, and cheerleaders very much!
  • 12. Answer  It is a Simple sentence because even though it has the coordinating conjunction “and” in it, there is not a complete sentence after the word “and.”
  • 13. What kind of sentence is below?  I don’t know why people sometimes run into poles, but those who do so are really embarrassed.
  • 14. Answer  It is a Compound sentence because the coordinating conjunction “but” connects two independent clauses.
  • 15. What kind of sentence is below?  I would love to give everyone an A for all their work; however, it would take everyone to do all of their work and their best work.
  • 16. Answer  It is a compound sentence because the semicolon “;” connects the two independent clauses.
  • 17. What kind of sentence is below?  I especially like Mr. Victor’s class after we get to leave his room.
  • 18. Answer  It is a Complex sentence because the subordinating conjunction in the middle of the sentence “after” joins the dependent clause with the introductory independent clause.
  • 19. What kind of sentence is below?  I would like to play football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, or just about any other sport as well.
  • 20. Answer  It is a Simple sentence because even though it has commas in it, the items are just a list. Plus, even though it has a FANBOYS in it, what follows the “or” is not a complete sentence.
