Identify the complex sentence that uses a subordinate conjunction. It’s time to turn off the television and to go outside. He went to rehearsal and he finished his homework. I will not see the movie if I did not like the book. Rudolfo is going on vacation with his grandparents.


The correct answer is “I will not see the movie if I did not like the book”. A conjunction is a word that connects or joins together words, phrases, clauses, or sentences. Subordinate conjunctions connect two unequal parts, dependent and independent clauses. Some examples of subordinate conjunctions are: after, before, unless, until, while, to mention some of them. In this sentence, the subordinate conjunction is “if“.

What type of conjunction is used in the sentence? Either you must stop eating my food from the refrigerator or you must pay me for it.


Answer:

Your answer would be that the correct version of the sentence is the following one: My brother took out the garbage, and Motehr was very happy.

Explanation:

You should capitalize words such as Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, Son, Daughter when they are used in place of the person’s name. What is more, you should not capitalize them when they follow possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, our). In the sentence above, Mother is capitalized because it is not preceded by any pronoun, while brother is not because it follows the possessive pronoun my.

Which words could replace the subordinating conjunction in the sentence while maintaining its original structure? Check all that apply.


Answer:

2) To present an interpretation.

The author of the passage is providing an interpretation of the book in this sentence. He is arguing that the novel is affirmative and hopeful, and that it stresses the power of humans to reach for greatness and inspire others. This is never explicitly stated in the novel. Therefore, the argument is based on his subjective views and analysis.

4) He also suffers a painful loss.

16. Which of the following sentences does not properly use a subordinating conjunction? A. He acts like he’s going to cry. B. I will refuse his demands because they are outrageous. C. You stay put unless I call for you. D. As the man said, what comes around goes around.

Answer:

B. humanity’s place in relation to the larger universe.

D. The music is loud yet so confidential

I cannot help feeling even more

like the center of the universe

Explanation:

Both “Death by a Black Hole” and “Man Listening to Disc” discuss humanity’s place in relation to the larger universe. However, the authors reach very different conclusions. While Tyson concludes that humans are insignificant in relation to the universe, Billy Collins puts humanity at the center of the universe.

In these lines, Collins shows how the speaker uses the music to isolate himself from others. He tells us that the music is loud, yet it is only for him. No one else can hear it, and no one participates in this private activity. He feels like the center of the universe because there is no one around. This shows that the speaker uses music to isolate himself from others.

1. Select the correct word that indicates the demonstrative adjective in the sentence. “Those shoes are exactly the same as mine,” she said in an amused tone. amused Those mine exactly 2. What type of conjunction is the bolded phrase? The judge listened to the explanation in order that he might decide fairly. subordinating correlative coordinating 3. Read the sentence. The coral reef was very beautiful. Which answer correctly describes the bolded word? The word “very” is an adjective describing which one. The word “very” is an adverb describing when. The word “very” is an adverb describing to what extent. The word “very” is an adjective describing how much.


1. Those

Demonstrative adjectives are adjectives that modify nouns or pronouns by pointing or indicating if they are near or far in distance or time. Those is a demonstrative adjective because it modifies the noun “shoes” by indicating some shoes that are far in distance.

2. Subordinating

Subordinating conjunctions are conjunctions that introduce a subordinating (or dependent) clause, and that join dependent clauses to independent clauses. There are many subordinating conjunctions, one of them is in order that. In the sentence, this conjunction helps to make a transition between an independent clause (the judge listened to the explanation) and a dependent one (in order that he might decide fairly.), and it also serves to introduce the latter.

3. The word “very” is an adverb describing to what extent.

In the sentence, very does not act as an adjective because it is not describing a noun, instead, it acts as an adverb because it modifies an adjective: beautiful by describing to what extent or degree the coral reef was beautiful.
