Answer Explanations

1. C
Complex Sentences: A sentence with one or more Dependent Clauses and at least one Independent Clause makes a Complex Sentence.
Note that in Sentence 1, “she started a new business and prospered financially” is one Independent Clause not two. It has a compound verb, but it is not a compound sentence. So, the whole sentence has one Dependent, and one Independent Clause.
Examples:
She left the meeting as soon as she heard her cellphone ringing.
The cars which had technical problems were recalled to the factory.

2. D
Compound-Complex Sentences: A sentence with one or more Dependent Clauses and at least two Independent Clauses makes a Compound-Complex Sentence.
Examples:
People who watch action movies rarely like romance; they find romance boring and mawkish!
I love biology, but my brother loves mathematics because he finds numbers interesting.

3. B
Compound Sentences: Compound Sentences are formed by two Independent Clauses joined by Coordinate Conjunctions (FANBOYS: For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So), Conjunctive Adverbs and Subordinating Conjunctions (Since, Because, When, While, Although, Despite the fact that, However, As a Result, Nevertheless) or Semicolon.
Examples:
I love action movies, but my brother loves romance.
I love action movies; however, my brother loves romance.
I love action movies; my brother loves romance.

4. A
Simple Sentences: Simple Sentences consist of one Independent Clause.
Examples:
I graduated from college last year.
She got married to a famous actor.
