How could you combine the following two sentences into one compound sentence?
The rabbit jumped into the bushes. The dog followed it.

a. After the rabbit jumped into the bushes, the dog followed it.
b. The dog and the rabbit jumped into the bushes.
c. The rabbit jumped into the bushes, and the dog followed it.
d. The dog followed the rabbit when it jumped into the bushes.

My choice is #A, but not sure.

    Remember, to make a compound sentence, there needs to be a real connection (called a conjunction) between the two shorter sentences. Usually that connection is one of these:

    , and
    , but
    , nor
    , or
    , for
    , so
    , yet

    (You can also use a semicolon (;) in place of the comma and conjunction.)

    It's not A. Which of the others fits the description I just gave?
