    Default Complex Sentences, mass noun

    1. Is this a complex sentence:
    The teacher reminded students to be punctual.

    2. What is a mass noun?
    Is "expedition" a mass noun? or a collective noun?

    1 How many main verbs are there? I can only see one.
    2 It has a plural- there have been many expeditions... I'm not sure that it has to be collective- you can have a one-person expedition.
