This second quiz looks at three more types of sentence to use in your writing: simple, compound and complex. The first Sentence (Types) quiz introduced statements, questions, commands and exclamations.
This challenging quiz tests your ability to spot sentences with different functions, i.e. interrogative, declarative, exclamatory and imperative, as well as sentences with different structures, for example complex, compound and simple. If you need to revise these, be sure to check out the Sentences (Complex) quiz.
How many different sentence types can you spot here:
Although the path was clearly marked, she realised she had lost her way at some point during the afternoon, so, panicking, she began calling loudly, "Is anyone there? I'm lost. Help!"
The entire sentence is complex, since it has more than one clause and uses the connectives "although" and "so". The dialogue includes an interrogative ("Is anyone there?"), a declarative ("I'm lost") and a command ("Help!"). Learning to write well involves mastering a variety of sentence structures.
