Grade 5 Grammar Lesson 6 Sentences simple, compound and complex

No matter how long a sentence is, if there’s only one finite verb, it’s a simple sentence.

A compound sentence is a sentence having two or more independent (main) clauses. This means there are two or more finite verbs making different sentences that are joined to make a single sentence.

A sentence that contains one or more subordinate clauses (dependent clauses) is called a complex sentence. This means a sentence made up of a main clause and one or more noun clauses, adjective clauses or adverb clauses is a complex sentence.
