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
or would this just be simple sentence
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!!
