Question:
Joe ate the sushi and left the restaurant.
Answer:
The answer compound sentence is not correct.
Explanation:
This is a simple sentence. It is easy to see why you may have thought that it is a compound sentence, since it contains the co-ordinating conjunction and. However, this conjunction actually joins two predicatesate the sushi and left the restaurant—within a single clause. The clue that you are dealing with a compound predicate rather than a compound subject is the fact that there is only one subject: I.
