 A clause is a group of words containing a subject and a verb .Clauses are divided two types: • Independent clause (main or principle clause)
• Dependent clause (subordinate or sub-clause)
           I.            Independent clauses An independent clause is a complete sentence .It contains the main subject and verb of a sentence .It can stand alone as a sentence by itself.           An independent clause = Subject + verb + (complement) Example: The thief ran away.
