Please check my work.

Identify whether if this sentence is complex, an exclamation, declarative, or interrogative.

    This sentence is a compound sentence. It has two independent clauses:

    The car broke down

    a rescuer van arrived within minutes

    Please study this site for the difference between compound and complex sentences.

    I also suggest you show this to your English teacher.
