Answer:

A. reads You want the present tense form of 'reads' because the subject is currently or in the constant habit of reading when she gets home. You don't want choice B because that would mean that the subject previously read as in the past, and the question is asks you want does she do out of habit or constantly day to day.

Answer:

Answer: D. You have a compound-complex sentence because you have 3 clauses. You have 2 independent clauses and 1 dependent clause. Let's break it down. subject + verb + object = independent clause (complete thought) subject + verb + subordinate conjunction = dependent clause (incomplete thought) 1st clause: Mark and Amber went to the store to grab some milk and cookies (independent) -----Subject: Mark and Amber (compound subject) ------Verbs: went and to grab ------Objects: store (direct) & milk and cookies (direct) 2nd clause: while they were in the store (dependent) ------Subject: they ------Verb: were ------Subordinating Conjunction: While 3rd clause: it started raining (independent) -----Subject: it -----Verb: started raining You can also think about it this way: you have a complex sentence (1 independent clause added to 1 dependent clause by way of a comma) = while they were in the store, it started raining & you have a single independent clause that can stand alone but added to the complex sentence by adding a comma and a coordinating conjunction (FANBOYS; for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so). Here the FANBOYS is "and".
