Rewrite this complex sentence as two simple sentences.

I wish I didn't have to go because I am very busy.

im not really understanding this, how to do it

  • english -

    I think what you are supposed to do is divide the sentence in half, so it would make two sentences that make sense. I'm not positive, though. Hope I helped!

  • english -

    You can eliminate "because" and put a period after "go."
