Grammar : Sentence Types Quiz
Simple sentences have both a subject and a verb, and they express a complete thought. Simple sentences can contain a compound subjects or verbs.
Compound sentences contain two independent clauses joined by a coordinator and preceded by a comma. The coordinators are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so.
Complex sentences have an independent clause joined by at least one dependent clause. A complex sentence always has a subordinator such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, or which.
When a complex sentence starts with a subordinator, a comma is needed at the end of the dependent clause. When the independent clause starts the sentence with subordinators in the middle, no comma is needed. When the dependent clause is in the middle of the sentence, commas are needed both before and after.
For each sentence, choose the correct type.
