Simple Sentences

A simple sentence is a single clause with a subject and a predicate, or sentences containing an independent clause. The basic construction of a simple sentence consists of subject, verb, and object. The fact that a simple predicate consists only of a verb or a verb phrase shows that simple sentences will consist of a subject and a verb.

Examples on this subject, along with the basic installation method, are given below:


  • Henry had lunch.

Subject + Verb

  • Henry ate.

Complex Sentences

Complex sentences contain an independent clause and at least one dependent clause.

Complex sentences are known as one of the four sentence types. The difference between these sentence types, which are divided into bait, complex, compound, and compound-complex, is that they have a dependent clause. Complex and complex compound sentences are the types that have this situation.

Dependent clauses cannot stand as a complete sentence. Therefore, dependent clauses without an independent clause are known only as part of the sentence.
