A complex sentence is by definition a sentence that contains one dependent clause attached to another indepedent clause.
* The below sentence is simple. I thought that the below underlined string of words is a dependent clause, but it's not. What is it then?
Eg: Bob and Sue went to the store on the corner near the center of town to buy groceries and to get some drinks for the party.
So, it this a simple sentence?.
Eg2: lying exposed without its blanket of snow, the ice on the river melts quickly under the warm march sun.
what function does the underline string of words hold?
