Practice 2 - Sentence fragments

Click on the word in each sentence fragment that tells you to expect a two-part structure.

But ... before you click, think about the structure associated with the word. Is it a relative clause; a concession; a condition; a contrast; a comparison; or a cause-effect structure?

For example, look at this sentence:

Despite the intense heat, the expedition reached its destination in record time.

Here, Despite tells you to expect a two-part structure and is associated with a contrast.
