    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A coordinating conjunction's purpose is indeed to join words or groups of words that have equal grammatical weight. It is used to connect words, phrases, or clauses that are of the same type or importance in a sentence. Examples of coordinating conjunctions include "and," "but," "or," "so," and "yet." They are used to create compound sentences and show the relationship between the connected elements. Therefore, the statement "A coordinating conjunction's purpose is to join words or groups of words that have equal grammatical weight" is true.

    A subordinating conjunction joins two  clauses in such a way as to make one grammatically dependent (subordinate) upon the other.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A subordinating conjunction is a type of conjunction that connects two clauses, making one clause dependent on the other. This means that the second clause cannot stand alone as a complete sentence. Therefore, the statement "A subordinating conjunction joins two clauses in such a way as to make one grammatically dependent (subordinate) upon the other" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Does this sentence require a comma?                            Although he had only a few dollars he made us a marvelous dinner.

    • A.

      No comma is required.

    • B.

      Although he had only a few dollars, he made us a marvelous dinner.

    Correct Answer
    B. Although he had only a few dollars, he made us a marvelous dinner.
    Explanation
    The sentence requires a comma because it contains a dependent clause ("Although he had only a few dollars") followed by an independent clause ("he made us a marvelous dinner"). The comma is necessary to separate the two clauses and improve clarity and readability.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Does this sentence require a comma?                         I went straight home after a delicous dinner.

    • A.

      I went straight home, after a delicous dinner.

    Correct Answer
    A. No comma is required.
    Explanation
    The sentence "I went straight home after a delicious dinner" does not require a comma because there is no need to separate the main clause "I went straight home" from the dependent clause "after a delicious dinner." The two clauses are closely connected and do not create any confusion or ambiguity.

    Correct Answer
    C. Tomorrow, if it rains, I will be so glad.
    Explanation

    Conjunctive adverbs are usually stronger than coordinating conjunctions because they more precisely explain the relationship betwween the two clauses.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Conjunctive adverbs are typically stronger than coordinating conjunctions because they provide more specific and precise information about the relationship between the two clauses. Unlike coordinating conjunctions, which primarily connect two independent clauses, conjunctive adverbs offer additional information such as cause and effect, contrast, comparison, or sequencing. This added specificity makes conjunctive adverbs more powerful in conveying the intended meaning and enhancing the overall coherence of the sentence or paragraph.
