  • Answer: C) Complex.

    Explanation: A complex sentence is a sentence that contains an independent clause (a phrase that has complete meaning on its own) and at least one dependent clause (a phrase that has a subject and a predicate but it doesn't have complete meaning on its own). The given sentence is complex, with one independent clause "It certainly succeeded" and one dependent clause "if that was the design."
