Clause Quizzes & Trivia

You’re going to the library, so … I want to go out tonight, but … She peeked into the shadows under her bed, and then … So what? But what? Then what? Clauses are the individual thoughts in sentences, and combining clauses together lets us create ideas more complicated than what you’d find in a kindergartner’s reading material!

If you know whether to use ‘then’ or ‘than’ when combining two separate ideas into a sentence, if you know how to avoid writing run-ons, and if you appreciate a good independent clause, then you’re in the right place! Take our quiz on clauses and prove once and for all that you know your coordinating conjunctions from the subordinating sort.
