SIMPLE SENTENCE-> Complex Sentence
How can i make a complex sentence, out of these sentences: Tom is a boy. He is eight years old. He goes to school in Philadelphia.
A complex sentence has one independent clause plus at least one dependent (subordinate) clause.
Here's one way to make this a complex sentence. I've underlined the independent clause and put the dependent clause in italics
Tom who is eight-years-old goes to school in Philadelphia.
Tom, who is eight, goes to a school in Philedelphia.
