Read the following sentences:-

Compound :We read and can pass in the exam.

Complex ;All takes food so that all can live.
Compound :All takes food and can live.

Complex :You worked hard so that you could shine in life.
Compound :You worked hard  and could shine in life.


Complex: subject+verb+so that+subject+can/could+verb+ext.
Compound :subject+verb+subject+can/could+verb+ext.


If a complex sentence is found having connected with" so that ",in order to change it into a compound sentence we need to delete so that from it and link both the clauses with " and".If both the subjective words are the same words,then the subject after "and" won't be used.
