  1. Remember, to make a compound sentence, there needs to be a real connection (called a conjunction) between the two shorter sentences. Usually that connection is one of these:

    , and
    , but
    , nor
    , or
    , for
    , so
    , yet

    (You can also use a semicolon (;) in place of the comma and conjunction.)

    It's not A. Which of the others fits the description I just gave?

    ??
