Very dumb question - sentence types watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong place or anything - this is my first post on this site.

    I was just wondering if someone could help me. I have to identify the form of this sentence: “Nobody goes to school to be assaulted.” . At first glance I would have said that it's a simple sentence, but then I noticed that there were three verbs in there 'goes to', 'to be', and 'assaulted'. This is now leading me to believe that it might either compound (but there's no co-ordinating conjunction) or complex.

    The more I think about it, the more it's bugging me. :eek3: If anyone could help then I'd be very grateful. It's probably a very stupid question, maybe I'm just over-complicating it. I don't know!

    Many thanks in advance,

    Daisy x

    Thank you ever so much; I thought I was right. I was probably thinking it through too much again!

    I'll give you some rep points (if that's what they're called :p:)
