Thank you for your help. I have 2 more questions.
Which is an independent clause?
when I saw her across the street
I waved frantically
to get her attention
because I wanted to tell her something
I think is is I waved frantically.
Next is which is a dependent clause?
although they live far from each other
Sofie and Mario are best friends
They enjoy the same kinds of games
and watch little television
I think is is and watch little television
The entire clause is "I waved frantically to get her attention."
A clause has a subject and a verb. A dependent clause cannot stand alone.
Study this site and try again for the second sentence.
I am confused on question one my choices are:
A. when I saw her across the street
B. I waved frantically
C. to get her attention
D. because I wanted to tell her something
I think the answre is B.
The 2nd question dependent clause:
F. although they live far from each other
G. Sofia and Mario are best friends
H. They enjoy the same kinds of games
I. and watch little television
I think the answer is F.
All of the answers for # 1 are wrong. The entire independent clause is "I waved frantically to get her attention."
Your answer for # 2 is correct.
Thanks for your help, but on question one those are my choices A,B,C,D. I guess the best choice is "B".
The computer may only accept B.
I'm sorry you're in this class.
We see a lot of erroneous information and faulty questions from online, for-profit "schools." The question was not written by a professional English grammar educator.
