Incomplete Sentences

A sentence is a group of words, or in some cases a single word, that

makes a statement (My brother listens to dreadful music.),
gives a command, (Turn that noise down!),
asks a question, (What did you say?)
or makes an exclamation (For crying out loud!).

These are incomplete sentences:

Which was a good thing. (no main clause)
According to all family members who were present at the picnic. (it is a phrase and should be followed by a clause)
