    That's better. Only # 1 is still wrong. The sentence has only one verb.

    6 - 13 are much better. Only 9 and 13 are wrong.

  7. Tom Jameson

    1 is simple
    6- simple
    13- complex because as is a subordinating conjunction that separates ic and dc

  8. Ms. Sue

    You were right the first time about 6.

    Yes, 1 is simple, and 13 is complex.

  9. Tom Jameson
