What are the types of sentences?

There are three major types of sentences. They are as follows.

  1. Simple sentence.
  2. Compound sentence.
  3. Complex sentence

Simple sentence:

This kind of sentence will have only one subject , a verb and an object.

Example: I ate an apple.

Compound sentence: 

This kind of sentence will have two simple sentences combined together with the help of a conjunction. In other words there will be more than one subject, verb and object.

Example: I like to swim and my sister likes to watch.

Complex sentence:

This kind of sentence will have a main clause and a dependent clause.

Example: I will eat when I am hungry. 

I will eat – main clause (gives meaning when read alone)

When I am hungry – dependent clause (does not give meaning when read alone. Gives meaning only with the main clause)

What should come first in a sentence?

A sentence will always starts with the subject. Subject is nothing but noun. But there are some exceptions where the sentence may begin with object, adjunct or verb. But most of the sentence will begin with subject.
