1. Several people listened, but nobody voluntered??? simple

2. Gina and dave picked the wild flowers, and we arranged them???simple

3. Snow fell: winter was now upon us??
compound

4. Mrs Smith may be in court, or she may be in her office?? compound.

4) is simple I presume.

A compound sentence is one where the sentence can have a dependent and independent clause.

independent clause: a group of words which can act as a sentence.

dependent clause: depends on the independent clause.
(e.g. ‘when it rang’ in ‘she answered the phone when it rang’).

Jill came in through the front door, she answered the phone, when it rang. (compound sentence)

I hope that helps.

Correction: a compound sentence is one which has two independent clauses.

independent clause: a group of words which can act as a sentence.

4 is compound.
you are correct.

1. Several people listened, but nobody voluntered??? simple no; it's compound -- two independent clauses (several people listened) (nobody volunteered)

2. Gina and dave picked the wild flowers, and we arranged them???simple no; it's compound -- two independent clauses --can you see them?
