Simple Sentences is a sentence structure that contains one independent clause and no subordinate clause.
Independent Clause is a clause that can stand alone. A clause is a group of words with a subject and a verb. Subject is the part of the sentence we are talking about. Predicate is the part of sentence that is telling about the subject. Every sentence contains at least one clause.
All of the sentences below are also independent clauses.
