A complex sentence consists of an independent clause (it makes sense on its own) and at least one subordinate clause (it does not make sense on its own).
They are joined by a subordinating conjunction.
If the subordinate clause is at the start, a comma is used to separate the clauses.
The subordinating conjunctions are:
Take the cake out of the oven when it is brown.

Miss Booth is tired because Todd woke her up early.
