4) is simple I presume.

A compound sentence is one where the sentence can have a dependent and independent clause.

independent clause: a group of words which can act as a sentence.

dependent clause: depends on the independent clause.
(e.g. ‘when it rang’ in ‘she answered the phone when it rang’).

Jill came in through the front door, she answered the phone, when it rang. (compound sentence)

I hope that helps.


Correction: a compound sentence is one which has two independent clauses.

independent clause: a group of words which can act as a sentence.
