I was just wondering if these were right?

Which of the following clauses are combined by coordination and which by subordination? Note the coordinating conjunctions and the subordinate clauses.

a. Michelle bought things on sale, for she was a thrifty woman. (Coordination, for)
b. Neither could she sleep nor could she eat. (Coordination, nor)
c. Park your care somewhere else or you will get a ticket. (Coordination, or)
d.We missed the train because we were late. (Subordination, subordinating clause: "because we were late" or is it simply "we were late")
e. I’ll sign the contract if you delete the first paragraph. (Subordination, subordinating clause: "if you delete the first paragraph")
