Some Examples on Conjunction

1. One of the busiest cities of India is Kolkata, one another is Mumbai and the other is Delhi. — wrong

Cricket has become so popular as a game that even young boys are talking about it. — correct

Ram is as good as Mohan.

3. I do not know that she is going to meet Mohan because, I have not consulted her since yesterday. — wrong

I do not know whether she is going to meet Mohan because, I have not consulted her since yesterday. — correct
