Homework Help: ENG help please julie

Posted by liz on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 at 12:43am.

I am revieing for a test these ar teh ones I can't figure out?

**the choice simple - complex or compund

1. even the air must have smelled different that long ago.

2. if you could travel in time, would you go to the time of the dinosaurs?

3. To scientists, this is clear evidence that plants and animals change over time.

-------
a compound sentence is one which has two independent clauses.

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

e.g: This is a compound sentence(clause 1),(clause 2) there are two independent clauses.

-------
a complex sentence has a independent and dependent clause.

When I saw what you have done, I was happy.

Independent clause: I was happy.

Dependent clause: When I saw what you have done. It needs I was happy to make it a complete sentence.

The dependent clause is introduced by either a subordinate conjunction such as although, while or because or a relative pronoun such as who or which.

so in this case it is When.

-------------

1: simple
2:compound
3:complex

Sorry, but "dna complexed" made an error. The sentences are these:

1. Even the air must have smelled different that long ago. simple -- one subject, one verb = one clause

2. If you could travel in time, would you go to the time of the dinosaurs?
complex - two clauses: dependent (If you...) and independent (would you...)

3. To scientists, this is clear evidence that plants and animals change over time.
complex - two clauses: independent (this is clear evidence) and dependent (that plants ...)

=)
