The noise from the ducks in the pond was soothing.

I have to Underline each independent clause and subordinate clause twice then tell if the sentence is simple, compound, complex, compound-complex

1.The noise from the ducks was soothing=indep clause
in the pond=subor clause
complex sentence

or would this just be simple sentence

  • English -

    This is a simple sentence. There is only one subject-verb construction here.

    The noise was soothing = independent clause

    from the ducks = prepositional phrase
    in the pond = prepositional phrase
    NOTE: There is no verb in there!!
