  • 2.  A simple sentence contains a subject and a verb. It is an independent sentence because it can stand alone.  Ex: Ted did his homework on a Saturday night.
  • 3.  A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction.  Ex: I tried to take Spanish, and Kobe did too.
  • 4.  A complex sentence has a independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence also always has a subordinator.  Ex: When he handed in his homework, he forgot to give the teacher the last page.
