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.

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.

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.
