You are given a block of text which explains the theory of this concept.
Once you have read the theory, do the exercises given below to test how well you have understood the ideas.
How to do the Exercises:
You are given a set of words.
You are also given some sentences with input boxes, and you are required to use the words to complete the sentences correctly.
You can put your chosen word into the input box by first clicking on the word and then in the input box.
The word will appear in the input box.

JOINING CLAUSES WITH COMMAS
When clauses are closely related, they can be joined by a semi-colon (;), but not by a comma (,).
- I was hungry; I ate a sandwich. (correct)
- I was hungry, I ate a sandwich. (incorrect)
To join two clauses using a comma, it is necessary to use a conjunction as well.
- I was hungry, SO I ate a sandwich. (correct)
