Question:

What is the difference between a dependent clause and an independent clause?

Abby B.
Answer:

A dependent clause is a fragment, and can often be identified by subordinating conjunctions. It can't stand on its own as a sentence, and needs punctuation and an independent clause in order to form a complete thought. An independent clause forms a complete sentence. It has both a subject and a verb, and is a complete thought.

In "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, who is the most important protagonist, and who is the most important antagonist?

Abby B.
Answer:

In "To Kill A Mockingbird", the most important protagonist is Scout Finch. The story is told exclusively from her perspective. Most of the novel's major events happen around her, and she's also in the process of coming of age. The most important antagonist is Bob Ewell. Ewell is after Atticus the entirety of the novel even after the court case is over, and eventually almost kills the Finch children.
