In grammar, sentences are grouped as simple, compound and complex.
"You can have tea or coffee."
The above sentence is not complex.
For me it looks like simple sentence.
Am I not correct?
But some say it is compound sentence.
Which is correct?

    I agree with you, Hanifa. That is a simple sentence with a compound object "tea or coffee". To have a compound sentence, we'd need two clauses:

    You can have tea or you can have coffee.
