      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Sends the verb to the end eg. weil es sonnig war
    Explanation
    The word "weil" is a subordinating conjunction in German that means "because." When "weil" is used in a sentence, it introduces a subordinate clause that provides the reason or cause for the main clause. In this case, the correct answer states that "weil" sends the verb to the end of the clause. This is because in German, the verb is typically placed in the second position in a main clause, but in a subordinate clause introduced by "weil," the verb is moved to the end of the clause. Therefore, the correct sentence structure would be "weil es sonnig war" (because it was sunny).
