    2 is now correct. Do you know which words make up the dep cl?

    5 is now correct.

    Look at 4 by isolating the clauses and ignoring the phrases; "Because of bad weather" is not a clause.

  • english/check please - ,

    4)Because of bad weather,the game was canceled,(ind)but it will be played tomorrow.(dep) and is compound complex

    IS it better now?

    4 is still incorrect.

    What is a sentence called when two clauses are joined by a coordinating conjunction?

  • english/check please - ,

    4)ok, it has to be compound ? But in my question I have only 2 choices either complex or compound-complex

  • english/check please - ,

    Then there's an error in your text or test. If that first phrase had been a clause, the sentence would have been a compound-complex.
