    Simple/ complex
    Message from mohammad51 posted on 11-02-2020 at 14:20:51 (D | E | F)
    Hello
    Please,could you help me with these sentences ?
    Thank you in advance.

    simple sentence or compound ?
    1. Nineteenth-century American scenes and customs were recorded and preserved by the firm of Currier and Ives.
    2. Nathaniel Currier was a printer, and James Ives was an executive.
    3. The two men produced “prints for the people.
    4. Currier favored current events; he produced prints of ships, battles, and news events.
    5. Ives had broader interests and generally favored country scenes.

    My answers :
    1. simple even two subjects
    ( No dependent clause , No two independent clauses ) two verbs joined by " and"
    2. compound ( two independent )
    3. simple clear though " for " is used to join two independent clauses ( FANBOYS)
    4. also simple although " and" is used, it talks about one idea.
    5. This I am suspected with it seems simple to understood, but also possible ( compound),
    because perhaps to place ( He) after and ( and he generally favored country scenes ) ?
    Omitting the subject ( not necessary to repeat )
    What do you say? I wait your answers.

    Hello
    Three days or four days I wait and my question is never answered.
    However, perhaps none has free time.
    Let me this time I myself answer my questions.
    1. Nineteenth-century American scenes and customs were recorded and preserved by the firm of Currier and Ives.
    2. Nathaniel Currier was a printer, and James Ives was an executive.
    3. The two men produced “prints for the people.
    4. Currier favored current events; he produced prints of ships, battles, and news events.
    5. Ives had broader interests and generally favored country scenes.

    Answers :
    1. simple
    2. compound ( two independent sentences) Joined by and
    3. simple ( only one independent sentence )
    4. compound ( I didn't notice the semicolon first ) I am sorry
    5. simple it tells about one idea
    I admit you helped me many times.

    Thank you all.
