Kaitlyn C.
Answer:

The sentence should read, "Hurricanes have sometimes been compared to typhoons because they both commonly lead to flooding in surrounding areas." "Because" is the correct answer here because it links two sentences, and it is explaining why the two weather phenomenon are compared.

Question:

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

Kaitlyn C.
Answer:

An independent clause is a group of words that contains a subject and a verb. It can stand alone as a sentence because it expresses a complete thought. For example, "She is eating spaghetti." is an independent clause because it contains a subject (girl), a verb (is), and expresses a complete thought. A dependent clause also contains a subject and a verb, but it cannot stand alone as a sentence because it does not express a complete thought. For example, "The boys ran school." is not a complete thought.
