That's potential literature right there, that is. Amazing piece of work.

Simple. That first sentence was a fragment. That second one was a simple sentence, and this third one is a compound sentence. This fourth one, having a dependent clause right in the middle, is a complex sentence. The form requires a compound-complex sentence, and this fifth sentence, having a dependent clause in the middle of its second independent clause, fills that requirement.
