2 Answer

  • Answer:

    1. A

    2. D

    3. D

    4. C

    Explanation:

    A dependent clause is a incomplete sentence. (2.D)

    Modifying subjects means when you change the whole story with just one or two words. (1.A)

    A complex sentence is a sentence containing a subordinate clause or clauses.(3.D)

    A complex sentence has one independent clause and at least one dependent clause. This means that the clauses are not equal, they use a co-ordinating conjunction that changes the rank of one or more of the clauses to make it less equal. For example; My Dad laughed when I told a joke. (4.C)

  • Answer:

    1. A

    2. C

    3. D

    4. C

    Explanation:

    1\ This sentence includes several phrases, but only one describes Jerome rather than what Jerome did.

    2\ Any clause must include both a subject and a predicate. A dependent clause, though, is unable to stand on its own—it depends on another clause for its meaning.

    3\ A complex sentence contains one independent clause and one dependent, or subordinate, clause.

    4\ The sentence contains both a dependent clause and an independent clause, and the two parts are connected by a subordinating conjunction.
