Are you clear on what a compound subject or a compound verb is? Here's a sentence with a compound subject:
Jack and Jill went up the hill.

Here's a sentence with a compound verb:
Henry ran and jumped all the way home.

Be sure to repost when you have those sentences rewritten. Then someone here will be able to give you feedback.
