Compound-Complex Sentence Practice

Compound Sentence: Has at least two independent clauses, meaning there will be at least two subjects and two verbs
Compound-Complex Sentence: A compound sentence with at least one dependent clause
Example: Before he eats dessert, James must eat his vegetable, but he doesn't really like them.
This is a compound-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 an independent clause. "He doesn't really like them" is another independent clause.
