Use of Conditional Conjunctions with Examples
Use of Conditional Conjunctions with Examples : Hello Friends ! In the previous notes we mentioned some conditional conjunctions. In which we have learned well with the use of If. If you have not read it yet, then before reading this notes, please read a Conditional Sentences with Examples. So that your concept is cleared well.
Today we are going to discuss some other important conditional conjunctions with examples. Which is also very important to keep in mind. So let’s start : How to use of Conditional Conjunctions with Examples
Use Of Some Other Important Conditionals
Friends! Today we will learn about the usage of some other conditional conjunctions other than IF. These are once again reminding you :
|As IF / As Though||Even If / Even Though|
|But For||Unless And In Case|
|Provided (That)||Suppose/ Supposing|
Use of As If / As Though :
It means : believe it or as far as possible. These two have the same meaning. These two are used solely for visualisation. That is, we only imagine. There is only a possibility of it coming true. For these, you can use the following structure :
|Sub + Present Tense||+ As If +||Sub + Past Indefinite Tense|
|Sub + Past Tense||+ As If +||Sub + Past Perfect Tense|
Let us now take an example to understand :
|1.||She looks||as If||She knew all the situation.|
|2.||He felt||as If||his tension had gone.|
Let us tell you that in common parlance, the Present Tense can also be used in both the main clause and as if clause such as :
|1.||She sings||as If||she knows nothing about any lyrics.|
Use of Even If / Even Though :
It means : No matter whether or In spite of the fact that . Both of these are used for an unrealistic situation. When we only speculate about a fact, such as :
|1.||Even if||he teaches me English,||I will not speak English.|
- Whereas even though is used for a real situation. With this we reveal any fact that can be true.
Let us take some examples :
|1.||Even though||He has taught me English,||I still don’t speak English.|
Use of But For :
Friends! But For means : If it were not for / If it had not been for. That is, a task depends on the completion of some other work. If this is not done, then even this work could not be completed. such as :
|1.||But for||your cooperation,||our team could not win this match.|
This sentence means that only with your cooperation could our team win the match. If you do not cooperate, then this work is not complete.
Use of Unless :
It means : If not. It is a combination of negative expressions. So whenever using unless in the sentence, avoid using negative words.
It can be understood in this way :
|Formula :||If + Negative Verb||=||Unless + Simple Verb|
|1.||She cannot speak English||if||she does not practice well.|
|OR||She cannot speak English||unless||She practice well.|
Both of the above sentences are correct and both have the same meaning. The first sentence uses negative sentences with if. Whereas the second sentence uses a simple sentence with an unless clause. Because unless gives negative meaning and it is wrong to use negative with it.
Use of In Case :
It means : in position or condition. It is used to explain the reason for the action occurring in main Clause. In Case clause is usually placed after the main clause. such as :
|1.||I will not go to my shop||in case||it rains.|
In Case can also be used as follows :
|Formula :||If||+ there is a/an + Noun||=||In case||+ of+ Noun|
For Example :
|1.||If||there is a fever, take medicine.||=||In case||of fever, take medicine.|
Use of Provided (That) :
It means : if something happens (provided). It is used in place of if when there is a limit or restriction in the sentence. Keep in mind that it is wrong to use provide in place of Provided. Apart from this, do not put an if with Provided.
For Example :
|1.||You can watch TV||provided (that)||you learn this lesson on time.|
Use of Suppose / Supposing :
It means : to imagine / understand the possibility. It is used only for visualisation. Keep in mind that one should never use if in conjunction with suppose. Because suppose is used only in the sense of if.
|1.||Suppose||you had missed the train.|
|OR||Supposing||you had missed the train.|
Thus friends ! These are some Conditional Conjunctions, which you can use to make conditional sentences. Many questions are asked about their use in competitive examinations. So, prepare them well.
