mad-ade is correct; by the letter of grammatical law, a "phrase" does not comprise a clause. in this case, the question is an independent clause. it would be better worded if you substituted "ind clause" or "sentence" for "phrase"

It was good, but I agree with mad-ade. Oh well, I guess people can just "go with the flow".

i guessed the answer, but it was painful to read, since "can you think of a sentence that ends in the word "the"" is not a sentence, but rather a question (as other people have pointed out).
i wish people would stop mutilating the english language, it makes my brain hurt...

That was a question.

you guys who say the question is wrong are wrong. can you think of a sentence that ends with the word the is an interrogative sentence making it a sentence. all sentences dont have to end with a period or be declaritives. dur du dur!

No. The ? ends the sentence not the.

Another answer/My opinion:What the...?
