is the sentence:

"By using a statement that began with 'I,' Ramon was able to state his feelings clearly."

a simple sentence or a complex sentence?

  • eng -

    It's complex. Here's why:

    independent clause = "Ramon ... clearly."

    dependent clause = "that began with 'I'"

    The rest is a phrase, but phrases don't count when you're determining simple (1 ind. clause) or compound (2 ind clauses) or complex (1 ind. + 1 dep. clause).
