The Complex Sentence Exercises

1. We think that we can touch the stars.

2. The apple of life, which another has found, is not ours.

3. Heaven seems to us in childhood as our own mother's face.

4. We walked in the garden until our friends came.

5. Life seems fair when we are young.

6. Life should seem fairest when old age comes with its rest after work well done.

In each of these sentences we observe that either the subject or the predicate is modified by a clause.

We observe that the clause in the first sentence is used as the object of the verb think, and that the other clauses are used as adjectives or as adverbs.

Sentences that contain one principal statement modified by one or more clauses are complex sentences.

A complex sentence is a sentence that contains a principal statement and one or more clauses.
