www.bankexamstoday.com /2016/01/conjunction-rules-in-english-grammar-pdf.html
Conjunction is a word or a group of words which connects two or more than two words, phrases,
clauses, sentences etc.
Types of Conjunctions
Coordinating Conjunctions
A coordinating conjunction joins together clauses of the same parts of the speech i.e. adverb-adverb,
noun-noun, adjective-adjective. E.g. He came to meet me, but I was not at home.
Subordinating Conjunctions
A Subordinating conjunction joins a clause to another on which it depends for its full meaning.
E.g. Since I was busy, I could not call you up.
Conjunction Rules:
Rule 1
The conjunction both is followed by and
E.g. He is both intelligent and hard working.
Rule 2
The conjunction so....as / as....as is used to make comparison between two persons and things.
so as is used in negative sentences.
E.g. He is not so good as you.
But as....as is used in both affirmative and negative sentences
E.g. He is as good as you.
He is not as good as you.
Rule 3
Although/ Though is followed by yet or a comma(,)
E.g. Though he worked hard, he failed.
Although these books are costly yet the students buy them because these are useful.
Rule 4

Hardly had I come out of the room
before I saw him dying.
Scarcely had he asked the question
when Agnes slapped him.
Barely had he bought the car before it was stolen.
Hardly, scarcely, and barely are negative words. Do not use not, no, never with the clause containing
these words.If a sentences starts with a negative word, use inversion form i.e. helping verb before the
subject.

sentences doubt and doubtful are followed by that.
E.g. I doubt if he will come.
I do not doubt that he will come.
Rule 8

E.g. He cheated not only his friends but also his parents.
Rule 9
Between is followed by and from is followed by to.
E.g. You will have to choose between good and bad.
She keeps singing from morning to evening.
Rule 10
