I am here to get some feedback on my latest attempt on dependent vs independent clauses.
I have struggled wit these for some time (as an ESL learner)
The following examples are what I believe is correct. If I can get someone who is experienced with these to give me some feedback I would be very appreciative.
I have identified all of the dependent clauses in each sentence.
1). We are praying he will attempt to run [for mayor] [of our town] [in the next election]. (3)
2). Bill thinks you should run. (0)
3). Give me some [of that ice cold tea] [with lemon chunks]. (2)
4). Running [for the the truck], she fell and bruised her elbow and later went [to the doctor]. (2)
5). Let's go out [for snow cones] [following the game] [if you want to]. (3)
6). I cannot believe what you are telling us is the truth because bill has never been in prison. (0) (2 independent)
Thanks for the support of all,
Doubtless some of us, Sara, don't quite understand what you need
was wondering the number of dependent clauses per sentence. I tried my best on this.
Okay Sara and now I'm sure someone else more qualified than I will soon respond
