Conjunctions – Exercises for Class 6

Words that connect words, phrases or sentences are called conjunctions. There are mainly three types of conjunctions:

  1. Coordinating conjunctions are used to join two independent sentences. Example: so, but, or, and.
  2. Subordinating conjunctions help to connect clauses where one set of words is dependent on the other clause and adds meaning to it. Example: because, since, if, when, till, until, although, though, before.
  3. Correlative conjunctions appear as pairs. They combine two sentences are equal in status. Example: neither-nor, either-or, not only – but also, so – that, such -as.
