    Sentence transformation rules:-

    Without pursuing rules you can’t change sentences correctly. Various kinds of clauses are adopted in the sentence that can imply the type of a sentence so by changing the clause the mode of sentence can also be changed. So let’s learn the rules

    Transformation simple sentences in the complex:-

    Present participle sentences can be turned into complex sentences by rephrasing since/as/when at the primary half the sentence.


    Simple:- I warmed my coffee because it was too cold.

    Complex:- I warmed my coffee as it was too cold.

    Being/ Verb+ing during a sentence are often transformed into a posh sentence by adding as/when/since at the primary half the sentence.


    Simple sentence:- On seeing a goat, the hunter climbs the tree.

    Complex sentence:- When Orion saw the goat, he climbed up a tree.

    Too…to in a simple sentence, can transform into a complex sentence by adding so…that.


    Simple:- He is too ill to go to the show.

    Complex:- He is so I’ll that he can not go to the show.

    The simple sentence despite/ despite can be transformed into a complex sentence by adding though/ although in the sentence.


    Simple:- Despite being unhealthy he still comes to school.

    Complex:- Though he is unhealthy he still comes to school.

    Transformation Simple to compound sentences:-

    In simple besides being transformed into not only..….but also in a compound sentence.

    Compound:- She isn’t only a singer but also an actress.

    In a simple sentence despite being transformed into but joining the two different clauses in a compound sentence.


    Simple:- Despite his ailment, he doesn’t quit his job.

    If the simple sentence indicates the cause of a person’s doing, the compound sentence will first state the cause, then join the result or outcome with conjunction and.


    Simple:- Being a criminal he was sentenced.

    Compound:- He is a criminal and sentenced.

    Transformation Complex to the compound sentence:-

    In complex sentences though/Although changed like in the beginning, the compound sentence will use the conjunction but/yet to connect the different clauses.


    Complex- Thought he is aged but still enthusiastic.

    Compound:- He is aged but enthusiastic.

    In complex sentences, the compound sentence will use the conjunction and join the different clauses.


    Complex:- As soon as she comes we can start dinner.

    Compound:- She comes and we start dinner.

    In complex sentences since/as/when transformed into and/so/hence/therefore within the compound.
