can some body give me a example of a clause sentence

If you have one independent clause, you also have a sentence if you punctuate it properly.

If you have one dependent clause, however, you have a sentence fragment.

If you have two independent clauses, joined properly, you have a compound sentence.

If you have an independent clause and at least one dependent clause, you have a complex sentence.

There are many examples in the link given above.
