Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 1

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

I didn't feel well_________I left the party early.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 1
A conjunction is a word which connects other words, phrases, and clauses.

'Because' is used to provide a reason for something.

'But' is used to contrast the ideas.

'So' is used to talk about clauses of result or decision. The given sentence explains the decision of leaving the party early and its cause.

'Until' means up to the time of, or before.

Thus, option A is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 2

Fill in the blank with the most suitable conjunction:

The magic show was cancelled;______we went to see the movie instead.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 2
In the sentence, one clause or idea, "we went to see the movie instead" is the consequence of another "the magic show was cancelled". Option D: Therefore' is a conjunction used in inference-based sentences, or to indicate the consequence of an action. The word itself means 'for that reason, consequently'. Hence this is the most suitable option. Option A: 'But' refers to contrast, for example, 'She is obedient but her sister is disobedient.' The given sentence focuses on consequence rather than contrast. Option B: 'And' refers to an addition. It merely connects two sentences that do not affect one another. It isn't relevant here as one sentence (or clause) is the result of the other. Option C: 'Since' refers to reason or cause. It does not refer to the consequence, but to the reason behind doing something. The meaning isn't relevant here. Hence options A, B, and C are incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 3

Choose the option that best fills in the blank:

He had scarcely stepped outside _____it began to rain.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 3
when Choice B is correct as the preposition 'when' means 'the timing' of the rain. Choice A is incorrect as it is used to compare two things. Choice C is incorrect as it is used to show purpose. Choice D is incorrect as it means to associate with something. Hence B is the correct choice.
Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 4

Choose the option that best fills in the blank:

He worked on his accounts ________listening to music.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 4
A conjunction combines or connects two sentences together. These parts of the resulting sentence are called clauses. When one clause is dependent on the other for its full meaning, it's called a subordinate clause, or the dependent clause. In the given sentence, the subordinate clause "listening to music" depends on the main clause "He worked on his accounts" for its full meaning. The given sentence is time-related, as it refers to two activities that take place at the same time. From the given options, 'while' is the most suitable conjunction, as it refers to an ongoing activity (listening to music) that takes place at the same time as the main activity (worked on accounts). Hence option D is correct. 'When' is time-related conjunction, and refers to an activity as well, but in terms of interruption. When' is used when one activity causes an interruption in the other, or it begins a while after the main activity, hence it isn't used here, and option A is incorrect. 'It is a conjunction used in condition-related sentences, it refers to a condition, 'provided that', but here the main clause isn't based on any condition, hence option B is incorrect. That' is a conjunction used in purpose-related sentences, where the subordinate clause is the purpose or reason for which the main clause takes place, but here 'listening to music' is not a purpose, hence option C is incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 5

Complete the sentence with the most suitable option:

She dressed the child in a heavy overcoat,__________he should catch a cold.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 5
'Lest' is used to prevent something from happening. It gives a negative meaning. It should not be used with not. The only auxiliary verb that can follow lest it should. 'Because' is used to provide a reason for something.

Therefore' is used mostly in argumentation when one statement logically follows from another. 'However' here is used for describing that it makes no difference how good, bad, difficult, etc something is or how much there is of something.

Thus, option D is the correct answer according to the rule.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 6

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

I like living here ______it's near the shops.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 6
The correct answer is Option A

BECAUSE is used as a conjunction when we express a reason. The reason the speaker lives there is the nearness to the shops.

The remaining options are incorrect because:

SO is used when a reason is expressed first - for e.g. This place is near the shops SO I like living here.

AND is used in the meaning of IN ADDITION TO.

BUT is used to express contrast.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 7

Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate words:

Last year they________in Europe, and visited Germany,_________they traveled only in Berlin.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 7
A conjunction is a word used to link other words, clauses, or phrases. The given sentence is in the past tense and 'they1 is the plural third person. In such case, 'were' helping verb is used for past tense. Was' is used with a singular person in the past tense, 'but' is used to contrast ideas.

'And' is used to connect equal parts of the sentence. 'So' is used to talk about a purpose. Thus, option B is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 8

Fill in the blank with the correct option:

Words that connect thoughts, ideas, actions etc are called______________.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 8
The correct answer is option A - conjunctions. Option B is wrong because a clause is a group of words that contains a subject and a predicate. Option C is wrong because prepositions are words that connect a noun to another noun or phrase in a sentence. Option D is wrong because pronouns are words that can take the place of nouns in a sentence.
Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 9

Choose the option that best fills in the blank:

No sooner had the door closed _______he breathed a sigh of relief.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 9
As a rule, follow 'no sooner' with 'than' and not with 'but'. Hence, the correct answer is C) Than.
Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 10

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

We went out______the bell rang.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 10
A conjunction is used to connect words, phrases, or clauses.

'So' is used to talk about clauses of result or decision.

'Although' is used to contrast the ideas.

'Until' means up to the time of, or before.

'After' is used to consider what happened in the past. The given sentence explains the past actions.

Thus, option C is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 11

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

She is hungry, and ________am I.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 11

Here, 'so' is correct because it implies also. Here, she is hungry, and 'also' am I (hungry). 'Nor' is incorrect because it is used before a positive verb to agree with something negative that has just been said. 'Neither' is incorrect because it implies not one nor the other of two things or people. 'Too' is incorrect because it is used before adjectives and adverbs to say that something is more than is good, necessary, possible, etc.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 12

Fill in the blank with the most suitable option:

She looked________a fairy godmother.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 12
'Like' is used to show a resemblance between two things or to express a preference. In the given sentence, her resemblance is shown as a godmother. With' is defined as accompanied by. Whether' is used to introduce an alternative. 'Such as' is used to provide specific examples of something you are talking about.

Thus, option D is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 13

Identify the conjunction in the following sentence:

Practice regularly, otherwise, you will not become a great pianist

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 13
The correct answer is Option C

We are to identify the conjunction in the given sentence.

A conjunction is a word that is used to connect clauses or sentences or to coordinate words in the same clause (e.g. and, but, if).

In the given sentence 'otherwise' is the conjunction that joins two sentences i.e. practice regularly and you will not become a great pianist.

Hence option C is the correct answer.

The remaining options are incorrect because:

Option A - YOU is a pronoun

Option B - WILL is used to indicate future tense.

Option D - BECOME is a verb.

Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 14

Identify the conjunction in the following sentence:

You must study hard or you will fail the exam.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 14
'Or' presents a choice between the alternatives "study hard" and "fail the exam", and 'or' combines these two. 'Or' is an alternative conjunction that combines the clauses "You must study hard" and "you will fail the exam", hence option A is correct. You' is a pronoun that refers to the speaker, it does not combine the clauses, in fact, it's a part of them, without which the meaning is incomplete. It's not conjunction, hence option B is incorrect. 'Will' is an auxiliary verb that forms the tense of the sentence, it's not conjunction as it does not combine the clauses. Hence option C is incorrect. 'Must' is a modal auxiliary that functions to form a mood or tense of a sentence, it does not combine the clauses, hence it isn't a conjunction, option D is incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 15

Choose the option that best fills in the blank:

She was standing at the bus stop______she saw her neighbor drive by.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 1 - Question 15
A conjunction combines or connects two sentences as one. When one of them depends on the other for its full meaning, that clause is the subordinate clause ("she saw her neighbour drive-by"), and the clause it depends on is the main clause ("She was standing at the bus stop"). Here, we require time-related conjunction as both clauses are in terms of the events (standing at the stop, seeing her neighbour) occurring at a particular time. From the options, 'when' is the most suitable option, as it demonstrates an interruption, there's a very short lapse in time between 'she is standing at the bus stop' and 'she saw her neighbour', they both don't occur at the same time, but the second activity interrupts the first, hence we use 'when' and not 'while'. 'While' is used when two activities are taking place simultaneously, but here they aren't. Hence option B is correct and A is incorrect. 'But' is a coordinating conjunction used when both clauses are independent and do not depend on the other for their full meaning, and is used to express a contrast in meaning between these clauses. But here we don't need coordinating conjunction, and the clauses are not contrast-related, hence option C is incorrect. 'For' is also coordinating conjunction, used when one clause is inferred or deduced by another, and that isn't the case here, hence option D is incorrect.
