I'm probably on the wrong website, but I've been wondering about this for the entire day now and no one could give me a satisfactory answer.
Is the following sentence correct? "I sat on the couch and was hungry."
Or should it be "I sat on the couch and I was hungry."
Or are both correct?
In the second sentence you could make two sentences by removing "and". In the first sentence this would leave the incomplete sentence "was hungry" (who was hungry?). I remember having something about this at school, but that's over ten years ago and I can't remember what it was.

I'm Dutch, but I somehow think this is an English thing too. In fact you can simply replace the words with their Dutch counterparts and you'd have the same (correct) sentence.
It's an OO world.
