Homework Help: writing

Posted by Mandi on Wednesday, August 1, 2007 at 10:27pm.

Hello,

This sentence contains a compound predicate ...right?

She Placed the shells in a plastice bag while he dried himself off.

Here's a sentence with a compound predicate:

She placed the shells in a plastic bag and then dried off the sand toys.

To have a compound predicate, you must have two or more main verbs (and any other words that go with them).

The sentence you wrote is a complex sentence with one main clause (she placed the shells in a plastic bag) and one subordinate clause (while he dried himself off). Each clause has its own subject and verb.

=)
