Conditional sentences are complex
sentences that have two clauses: If-clause
(which gives the condition) and main clause
(which gives the result).
Conditional sentences or Conditional clauses or IF-Clauses are
used to express that the action in the main clause can only take
place if a certain condition is fulfilled.
Conditional sentences also known as
