    clauses

    Is the sentence, 'the man who I used to live with' complex because it consists of a main noun clause ('the man') and subordinate relative clause 'who I used to live with') or am I completely confused?

    ..Who I used to live with -It's a defining clause.
    'The man who I used to live with'-subject.

    Re: clauses

    so is it just one defining clause then? Making it a simple sentence?
