Complex In a Sentence

A complex in sentence with one independent clause and one more dependent clauses is called a complex sentence. When a complex sentence has more than one independent clause, it is called a compound-complex sentence. Before we go into details of complex sentences, let us have a basic understanding of the following 04 types of sentences.

  1. Simple sentence    (complex in a sentence)
  2. Compound sentence
  3. Complex sentence
  4. Compound complex sentence
Let us understand the above o4 types of sentences with the following:

What are 5 examples of a complex in a sentence?

  1. Jack bought a car.
  2. Ricky was a brilliant student and he passed the exam easily.
  3. John did do not go to school yesterday since he was sick.
  4. James ran fast but he could not win the race because his start was late.
  5. When she was younger, she believed in fairy tales.
Look at the first sentence which has only one subject and one predicate and makes a complete sense by itself. Such a sentence is called a simple sentence.

Look at the second sentence. It contains two parts:
  • Ricky was a brilliant student.
  • He passed the exam easily.
Note that coordinating conjunction, and has been used to connect the two parts. Each part contains a subject & a predicate on its own and each part can stand on its own. Therefore each part is a sentence that is a part of a large sentence. This type of part is called a clause. We can also note that each clause is independent of the other and therefore can be called an independent clause. Thus a sentence such as the 2nd which is made up of two or more independent clauses is called a compound sentence.

You need to keep in mind that the coordinating conjunctions used to connect two independent clauses are and, but, for, or, nor, yet & so. Also the punctuation mark semicolon (;) can function as coordinating conjunction in some cases. 

Now look at the third sentence, it too has two parts:
  • John did go to school yesterday.
  • Since he was sick.
Here you will understand that the first clause is an independent clause. However, the second clause can only give a complete sense only when you read it along with the first clause. Such a clause is called a dependent clause.

Therefore a sentence such as the third which is made up of one independent clause and one or more dependent clauses is called a complex sentence. or complex in a sentence.

Now look at the fourth sentence, it has 03 parts (or clauses):
  • James ran fast
  • He could not win the race
  • Because his start was late
You should note that the first two clauses are independent clauses and the third clause is a dependent clause.

Thus a sentence such as the 4th containing two or more independent clauses with one or more dependent clauses is called a compound-complex sentence.

We have now discussed the different types of sentences containing more than one clause which we identified as an independent or dependent clause. In the next page, we will discuss more dependent clauses which can be grouped into 03 sub-categories as noun clauses, adjective clauses, and adverb clauses.

How can you tell if a sentence is complex?

Hello, Today we are looking at how to maximize your points on I'm speaking tests in particular 1 and 3 I'm going to be giving you some very valuable tips for How can you tell if a sentence is complex and how to do your very best in these tests.

A sign would you need to do you need to answer with a little bit more detail you need to extend your arm this is a little bit. On the question that they ask okay it doesn't matter if you prepare something and they didn't pay any is there on set a question (What are 5 examples of complex sentences?) that you on so it is no good for the drop to have to make an effort on set that question. Now today we're gonna be looking at using some it relative pronouns in some relative adverbs 10 lengths than out your sentence is a little bit okay. 6 standing alliances on touring the question. As you may be aware I am speaking tests 1 and 3 that particular looking for you to give information about the self to tell people about yourself okay.

So I'm saying that these plans and at the UPS can be particularly helpful.

These private homes you put in the middle of sentences to continue the sentience and give a bit more information so you to use to describe people. The person I met who is a shopkeeper the person I went to school who is now a famous movie star okay. So when you're giving more information about a person okay who's doing something he's the subject okay you can also use whom if but it's it's not so common whom would be. At the indirect version of this someone who's not doing something. Now you would use that when you're describing things okay. I went to buff on Saturday that was a fantastic place to visit okay some describing the activity of going to a place okay. By itself a problem now. I can throw in that when I want to I'm also describing things in that known to find clues sense. The film which I saw on Saturday was really good okay you can get some more information on this on another one of our blogs.

Who's when I'm describing a possession at a certain time. So to the calm, I drove and whose owner was Charlie I can't say I'm describing an element of possession okay. Now looking on to the relative and fabs. I can use it when I'm talking about times.

"I went to the school when I was aged 13 to 18."

Yeah, I can use whereas. I when I'm talking about the place that something happens so I'm I went to the act is temple where I learned to lost about acting okay see giving more information about that particular place and I can use why I'm I mean why normally results in the question and that's difficult to anti include why and then and then the food still. I'm. So you can say. I decided to cross the road today why do you think that's it. Well, I went again to some state. Now I'm gonna put some examples here and just show you you know how we can use these I went to school with Charlie.

Okay, so I know the next bit gives more information about a person okay the man who helped me Polish my driving test sound giving even more information about this person.

"Well, he lives in a place in the north of England. I enjoyed playing I played football at school which was fun say which that is talking about you know the activity as I mentioned yeah."

And they teach whose ex but I.T. So I'm talking about the skills that he had possessive okay the teacher whose expertise helped me pass my exam. Now I have my shed little light I know some of these might be unfamiliar to you we just have a quick recap of this so I'm going to use when I'm describing people the person I went to school with who is now doing well the pass and I met at the shop who was a very nice person, okay so these are kind of small little chunks that you kind of push on to the end of the sentence yeah the place. That time went today was a really great site that's why I went today is the extra piece of information. Which at the sandwich which I haven't lunch was really good so I had lunch.
