Complex Sentences

You can create complex sentences in English by joining two simple sentences together. If you take these two sentences: 'Alec was happy' and 'It was Alec's birthday', you can create this complex sentence: 'Alec was happy because it was his birthday.' If you join the sentences with 'and', 'but', 'so', 'yet', 'nor', 'or' or 'for', you've made a compound sentence, rather than a complex sentence.

See if you can tell the difference by trying this English quiz.
