A kernel sentence is a simple, declarative sentence in active voice and affirmative form and has no modifiers and connecting conjunctions.

     That talented boy is my brother.   (NOT a kernel sentence because of the modifier talented.)

     This is my brother.  (a kernel sentence)
     This is not my brother.  (NOT a kernel sentence because of the word "not" rendering the sentence in negative, not affirmative form).
     This bag is bought by my sister.  (NOT a kernel because it is in passive voice.)
     The boy is talented.  (a kernel sentence.)
     I want to eat chocolates.  (NOT a kernel sentence because of  the infinitive "to eat.)
     I want chocolates.  (a kernel sentence.)
     I want chocolates and nuts.  (NOT a kernel sentence because of the connecting conjunction "and").
