            A single sentence is a sentence that has one subject-verb combination.
 
            The subject in a simple sentence may be compound (My mother and I are completely different.) The verb may also be compound (They laughed and cried at the same time). What is important is that there is only one subject-verb combination in a simple sentence.
 
            These are simple sentences. Notice that no commas are used in them.

My younger sister speaks English well
My mother and father speak English well.
My older brother is a lawyer and has a good job.
My mother and father speak and write English well.

 
The simple sentences above can be written as formulas
SV———simple subject with simple verb
SSV_____Compound subject with simple verb
SVV——-simple subject with compound verb
SSVV—–compound subject with compound verb
The following sentences are not simple sentences because they have two subject-verb combinations. They are compound sentences, and their formulas look like this: SV, (connecting word)  SV.
My brother lives in New York, and my sister lives in Paris
My older brother is a college graduate, but he can’t find a job
