Please answers these for me, either T or F:

1.An infinitive phrase functions as a noun, an adjective, or an adverb.

2. Restrictive phrases and clauses are set off by commas while nonrestrictive phrases and clauses are not set off by commas.

3. A complex sentence has one or more dependent clauses.

4. In the question variation, some form of the verb "do" is always placed in front of a subject.

5. A compound sentence has two or more independent clauses.
