A compound sentence is when you combine two or more independent clauses, each of which provides a complete and separate thought. The clauses are joined to each other by conjunctions, or a semicolon.
We use coordinating or subordinating conjunctions to connect the sentences. The seven coordinating conjunctions are usually used with a comma, and their initials spell the mnemonic "fanboys."
A simple subject is what or whom the sentence is about, the main noun. A simple predicate is the action the subject is doing in the sentence, a verb. These are simple, not associated with the compound subject or compound predicate, which are inverse to these. SO:
Sentence: The old dog loafs by the fire.
Simple subject: dog
Simple predicate: loafs
A split infinitive is a verb that has a word (usually an adverb) between "to" and the main verb.
We like to often travel together.

One or more adjectives in a sequence that modify the same noun.
Examples would be seen in the terms "large red ball" or "bright, sunny day" where the comma is dictated by use or style, not necessarily grammar.

A variety of sentence patterns can alleviate choppy writing that halts and stops, create a more dynamic flow, and pique the reader's interest. =]
An adverb is a word which modifies a verb, such as: She haltingly spoke of her experience. In this sentence, the word "haltingly" is the adverb. In the sentence you provided, "How" is not an adverb.
The phrase "state of the art" should be hyphenated when it is used as an adjective, e.g.: : "This machine is an example of state-of-the-art technology", but not when used as a noun as in the following sentence: : "The state of the art in this field is mostly related to the X technology".
A complex sentence is a sentence consisting of an independent clause and a subordinating clause. Or, to put it more simply, complex sentences involve more than just a straightforward noun + verb. Complex sentences include extra phrases added to a base sentence, but which cannot stand alone as a sentence.
Simple sentence: I cannot work in the garden.
Complex sentence: Because it is snowing outside, I cannot work in the garden.
"Because it is snowing outside" is a dependent clause, and cannot stand on its own.
Simple sentence: I intend to work in my garden this afternoon.
Complex sentence: If the weather stays fine, I intend to work in my garden this afternoon.
A complex sentence is one that contains a single independent clause and at least one dependent clause.
