    1. If there were no main verb, there would be no complete sentence. "houses" is the main verb here = c

    2. This is a simple sentence with a compound verb "are taking" = c
    Simple sentence = one independent clause with no dependent clause.
    Dependent clause = contains additional in formation but cannot stand alone
    Compound verb = has an auxiliary or helping verb + another verb form, such as "are + taking"
    Compound sentence = has 2 or more independent clauses

    3. correct!

    4. rain = noun = a / the adjectival form is rainy

    5. Check the punctuation carefully. None is correct.
    a. incomplete sentence "In 1976"
    b. run-on sentence = where the comma is, a ; (semicolon) is required
    c. run-on sentence
    d. this is the closest, except for the incomplete sentence "In 1976."
