  4. A simple sentence expresses a single and a complete thougth and has only one subject and one predicate.EXAMPLE:Water boils at 100°.Water is the subject whereas boils at 100° is the predicate.COMPOUND SENTENCES have 2 or more coordinate clauses.These clauses are independent clauses.EXAMPLE:I'm arriving at the station in 5 minutes and meet you at the ticket office.CLAUSE 1:I'm arriving at the station in 5 minutes.CLAUSE 2:meet you at the ticket office.These clauses are independent clauses.Two thoughts that are connected by using a co-ordinating conjunctions such as AND,BUT,OR,SO.COMPLEX SENTENCES have only 1 independent clause and 1 or more dependent clause.The independent clause is the principal clause and the dependent clause is called as SUBORDINATE CLAUSE,which often begins with the words like although.as if,as soon as,unless...etc.EXAMPLE:*I would be grateful if you could send me information about sales outlets.The subordinate clause depends on the principal clause.

  6. Simple sentece has a single subject-verb pair. In other words, it has only one independent clause and no dependent clause.

    Example

    Johnny threw the ball across the street.

    A compound sentence has two or more independent clauses, but it has no dependent clauses. The independent clauses can be joined by a semicolon; they can also be joined by a comma and a coordinating conjunction (and, or nor, for, but, yet, so).

    Examples:

    Fred wanted to play basketball, but he didn’t make the team.

    Complex Sentence

    Although a complex sentence has only one independent clause, it may have more than one dependent clauses.

    Examples:

    I didn’t know what to say when I heard the news


    A compound-complex sentence, which may be the most difficult type to write, has more than one independent clause, and it has at least one dependent clause.

    Examples:

    While Sally washed the dishes, John swept the floor, and James wiped the counters.
