    Thanks for questioning us! 

    A compound sentence is a sentence in which two independent clauses are connected using a conjunction or a semicolon. Independent clauses are self-sufficient, meaning they may stand alone in a sentence.

    Hope it helps, and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions!
