earth and here's our question the last sentence of the

00:18

passage beginning online seventy two is an example of what

00:22

and hear the potential answers are commissioned The best way

00:25

to decide what kind of sentence or klaus we're dealing

00:27

with is to see if it answers to santa or

00:31

maybe it's to look at the definition for each answer

00:33

and decide which best matches our sentence so let's go

00:36

with that one are check out in saray first the

00:38

definition of a comparative sense is a sentence that compares

00:42

to things an example would be we absolutely love oreos

00:46

while steve does not because he's a heartless creep Well

00:48

the sentences comparative because it compares us normal oreo loving

00:52

people Too weird steve Anyway if we look at the

00:55

last sense of the passage there aren't really two different

00:58

things being compared so we can get rid of answering

01:00

Now let's take a look at answers cnd and elliptical

01:03

Klaus is not an excuse to get out of a

01:05

workout it's actually a clause where some words have been

01:08

left out on purpose as the meaning of the sense

01:10

can be understood without them An example would be we

01:13

like oreos but steve doesn't we're missing the full predicated

01:16

The second sentence without a lip says the sense would

01:19

be we like oreos but steve doesn't like oreos The

01:22

four clauses in our sentence don't look like they're missing

01:25

any words so answer c is out meanwhile in independent

01:29

clauses a clause that doesn't need mrs claus in his

01:31

life but for our purposes it's a complete simple sense

01:35

in our sentence the first three clauses that begin with

01:37

the word if you need the final statement to finish

01:40

the thought but this entire sentence is anything but simple

01:43

there's way more than one verb and we lost count

01:45

of the subjects x so we can cross off answer

01:47

date and a compound senses a sentence made up of

01:50

two independent clauses In other words one sentence made up

01:53

of two or more smaller senses that would each be

01:56

fine standing on their on their usually joined by coordinating

02:00

conjunctions like and and but and can be separated with

02:03

a period But if we took out and in this

02:05

sense and replaced it with a period we'd be left

02:08

with an incomplete sentence like welcome to european fellowship one

02:11

of the audio data so we can cross off ansari

02:14

The author uses the word if three times and then

02:17

uses the word then kind of like when your mom

02:19

says if you clean up your room then you can

02:21

have your oreos unless you're steve who knows what's safe

02:24

mom motivated him with in our sentence the author says

02:27

that america can be welcomed into european fellowship on the

02:30

condition that they accomplished the three things mentioned at the

02:33

beginning of the sentence It doesn't get much more conditional

02:36

than that so answer b is the correct choice Q

02:39

That was exhausting Go reward yourself with some oreos Unless

02:42

you're steve and continue living Your sad oriole is life 00:02:45.01 --> [endTime] steve
