How many clause does a simple sentence consists?
The simplest sentence consists of only a subject and a predicate (a noun and a verb) and is only one clause. "Scott ran." is an example of such a sentence. It has one noun (Scott), one verb (ran), and is an independent clause (it stands alone as a sentence). A slightly more complex sentence can have two clauses as is evidenced by the following modification to the earlier example: "Scott ran, and he made it in time." The original sentence now contains two clauses (an independent one and a subordinate one). In general, though, "simple sentence" usually refers to a sentence with only one clause.
How many dependent clauses are in a compound sentence?
How many independent clauses must there be in a sentence?
There only needs to be one (i.e. the main sentence itself). In fact, there can only be one, if my understanding is correct. There can be umpteen subordinate clauses, which aid the understanding of the main sentence, but these are not independent in their own right. However, these subordinate clauses are dependant on the main clause to make sense. When one independent clause ends, another begins in another sentence, so there is only one, if we are to make sense, that is. Having more than one might sound like: 'Do you want to play a game of Scrabble, I think koalas are cute.' Utter nonsense.

What are Subordinate clauses?
Asubordinate(or dependent) clause dose not express a complete thought and cannot stand by itself as a complete sentence. Example: If wishes were horses The meaning of a subordinate clause is complete only when the clause is attached to an independent clause. Example: If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride. Sometimes the word that begins the subordinate clause is the subject of the clause. Example: This is a line that comes from a mother goose rhyme. Example: When my grandmother was young, many children were learning mother goose rhymes. Example: This is the trophy that out soccer team won.
What are the components of a sentence?
The only necessary parts of a sentence are the subject and verb, for example, "Tom ate", except in commands in which the subject can be left out, for example, "Sit down". However there are many other options that you can add in, including prepositional phrases and clauses ("in the kitchen"), adjectival phrases and clauses ("who doesn't have a dining room"), adverbial phrases and clauses ("because he was tired") and noun phrases and clauses ("where else to sit"). So the sentence, "Tom, who doesn't have a dining room, ate in the kitchen because he was tired and didn't know where else to sit" has both a subject and verb and many other clauses. In fact a subject may not be necessary even where the mood is not imperative. Impersonal verbs (typically found in statements about the weather) do not have a subject. For example, in the sentence "It is raining", the word "it" is not technically a subject. The three words together constitute a verb. please i want to know part of sentence.
