    Number 1 is complex, Number 2 is compound, Number 3 is simple.


    Number 1 is complex because it has both a dependent clause (After they finished studying) and an independent clause (they went to the store). The subordinating conjunction in this case is "after".

    Number 2 is compound because it has two simple sentences (The voyage was difficult & it was worth it) joined by the conjunction "but".

    Number 3 is a simple sentence with no conjunctions.
