What are Conditionals in English?
Conditional tenses speculate what could happen, what might have happened, and what we want would happen. If we're talking about the English language, most sentences with conditionals consist of the conditional word, "if." Now, there are different kinds of conditionals that are used in the language. Let us describe their formulae to improve our understanding.
|Conditionals||If Clause||Main Clause||Example|
|Zero||If + simple present||simple present||If you heat ice, it melts.|
|Type 1||If + simple present||simple future||If you study, you will get good marks.|
|Type 2||If + simple present||Present continuous or present conditional continuous||If you go to bed early, you would not be tired.|
|Type 3||If + past perfect||perfect conditional or perfect continuous conditional||If it had rained, then the tank would have gotten full.|
When to Use Commas?
Usually, commas are used to separate a list or a group of things; whenever someone needs to separate two or more entities, they use commas. Commas may also serve as conjunction and can be placed when a sentence is becoming long and needs to be split into two separate clauses. Commas are one of the most commonly used punctuation marks and serve multiple purposes in English grammar. Commas are also used to put a subordinate clause in the middle of a sentence. When we start that clause, we put a comma and we put one at the end of it.
