Complex Sentence Practice

Complex Sentence: One independent clause and at least one dependent clause
Example: Before he eats dessert, James must eat his vegetables.
This is a complex sentence. "Before he eats dessert" is a dependent clause-it has a subject and a verb, but does not make sense by itself. "James must eat his vegetables" is the independent clause.
