    Simple sentences have one independent clause. "Jack hit a homerun."

    Compound sentences have two independent clauses and are usually joined by a coordinating conjunction (FANBOYS). "Jack hit a homerun, and he was the game's hero."

    Complex sentences have one independent and at least one dependent clause in them. "When he least expected it, Jack hit a homerun."

    An article is a word that combines with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. The three most common are, in no specific order: the, an & a.

    When you say 3 simple,compound and complex sentences, do you mean 1 or 3 of each?

    P.S. I like to say:
    The DEFINITE article is the. The book. The chair. The girls.

    The INDEFINITE article is a, an. a book, a chair, an apple, etc.
