Instructions: PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY TO GET IT RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING.
? All the sentences must include either adverbial clause or complement clauses as explained below in the tables. However, for Adverbial Clauses you are kindly requested to use only the list of words given in the time tame above (before, until, , while , as soon as, because, if, although, as if).
Adverbial Clauses
Type of clause Subordinate conjunction beginning the clause sentences Notes
Time Before, until, while ? I can see you when I finish my work.
? I have not seen him after he returned to the country. Write 12 sentences (time clause): using each of these words in 4 sentences.

Condition If ? John may come if he comes alone Write 4 sentences using if:
Contrast Although ? I tried to finish the work, although I felt very tired. Write 4 sentences using although
Manner As if ? He looks as if he needs more sleep. Write 4 sentences using as if
Type of clause Complement clauses Example Notes
Reported speech The professor informed Mary that she passed the exam. Write 5 sentences. Note the subject of the embedded clause refers to the object of the main clause.
Sam says that he wants to buy a new house. Write 5 sentences. Note the subject of the embedded clause refers to the subject of the main clause.
Sam thinks it was good that he went to see the doctor. Write 6 sentences. Note the subject of the embedded clause refers to the subject of the main clause though there is an intervening clause. Please write sentences with such intervening clauses
? The subject of the embedded clause must refer back to the subject or the object of the matrix (main) clause.
E.g. she had just fixed her bicycle when it broke again. → (the embedded subject it refers to the object bicycle)
The car stopped before it hit the child. → (the embedded subject it refers to the subject the car). So, Please write equal sentences where the embedded subject refers either to the subject and to the object.
? Please use either present or past simple tense with the embedded clauses. Again please do not focus only on one tense but write half of the sentences in the present and the others in the past.
? Words used in these sentences must be from the most common words in English according to the National British Corpus; you can find a list of these words in the following website: http://www.macmillandictionary.com/learn/clear-definitions.html
? Please pay attention to sentence length. So, the number of word in each sentence should not be more than 13 words.
? Please avoid using auxiliary or model verbs; e.g. Mary could not come because she was tired.
? Use only first and third person pronouns (I, we, he, she, it, they).
? Please avoid relative clauses
