EDUARDO:#1--good; #2--you have changed the original independent clause into a dependent one and added an independent clause; #3--good.
SARA: #1--that's an independent clause, and you have changed the original IC into a dependent one; #2--The same problem; #3--yes, but don't forget the punctuation;-)
