Compound sentences have more than one verb in the personal form, and therefore have as many predicates as there are verbs. Each of the sentences that are joined together to form a compound sentence is called a proposition.
A compound sentence by coordination is the union of two propositions by means of a coordinating conjunction. These two propositions, although they are joined together, are syntactically independent. That is to say: two or more propositions joined by a link, but if we separate them both, they maintain a complete meaning.
ADVERSATIVES They pose an opposition of meaning between them, that is to say, what one affirms is partially or totally contradicted by the other. The nexuses that join them are usually: but, nevertheless, nevertheless, more, but (than), before, rather, except, otherwise, etc.
They are two or more propositions that are joined by a subordinating link. One proposition (the subordinate one) depends syntactically on the other (the main one). The subordinate proposition performs a syntactic function (subject or complement) in relation to the verb of the main one.
Simple and compound sentences examples
Sometimes the subject, verb and complement can be made up of several words instead of one, so be sure to pay attention to the whole sentence rather than to each word individually.
These are sentences created from two clauses that follow the same basic structure, but this is placed twice and can be separated using conjunctions, some of these are: and, so, but, because and since.
Many of the grammatical rules in English have their exceptions, as for example regarding the use of the article “the”, which is not used with the name of continents, countries and states, with the exception of: The United Kingdom, The United States, The Netherlands, The Hague.

Last 19th we detected, due to the implementation of a new version of the Virtual Campus, that when using Netscape, from modem and in saturation conditions (as especially occurred from the 20th to the 23rd) the use of shared mailboxes (as for example is the case of the continuous evaluation mailbox) gave problems.
On the 19th we detected that there were problems in the use of shared mailboxes (for example, the continuous evaluation mailbox). The cause was the launching of a new version of the Virtual Campus when using Netscape from a modem and in saturated conditions (as was especially the case from the 20th to the 23rd).
Nor should one go to the extreme of reducing the text to very short sentences, separated by periods, which can produce a decohesive effect. The clearest and most readable style is the one that combines the short sentence with coordinated and subordinate sentences that reflect the logical relationships between ideas.
