Thank you for your help. I have 2 more questions.
Which is an independent clause?
when I saw her across the street
I waved frantically
to get her attention
because I wanted to tell her something
I think is is I waved frantically.

Next is which is a dependent clause?
although they live far from each other
Sofie and Mario are best friends
They enjoy the same kinds of games
and watch little television
I think is is and watch little television

  • grammar -

    The entire clause is "I waved frantically to get her attention."

    A clause has a subject and a verb. A dependent clause cannot stand alone.

    Study this site and try again for the second sentence.

    All of the answers for # 1 are wrong. The entire independent clause is "I waved frantically to get her attention."

    Your answer for # 2 is correct.

    Thanks for your help, but on question one those are my choices A,B,C,D. I guess the best choice is "B".

  • grammar -

    The computer may only accept B.

    I'm sorry you're in this class.
