*    Types of Sentence as per Structure

 

*       Simple Sentences

A simple sentence has one main clause. It means it has one subject and one verb. In addition, a simple sentence can have adjectives and adverbs. A simple sentence can't have another main clause or any subordinate clause.

  •  Delhi is a beautiful city.
  •  I read in seventh class.
  •  The teacher teaches us.
  •  He reprimands me.

 

*      Compound Sentences

A compound sentence has two or more main clauses. The clauses can be joined with a coordinating conjunction (e.g. for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) or a semicolon (;). As with a simple sentence, a compound sentence can't have any subordinate clause.

  •  He committed mistakes yet I supported him.
  •  As you sow so you reap.

A complex sentence contains one main clause and at least one subordinate clause.
