Question

# Given below are a pair of independent clauses in each option, choose the appropriate pair which can be joined together by the cumulative conjunction 'and' (to form a compound sentence):

A
John went to watch the match with his friends. Rose wanted to go with John.
B
It is time for dinner. We shall leave aside our work.
C
I love playing video games. I love watching television.
D
Danesh wanted to go to a restaurant. Roma wanted to eat at home.

Solution

## The correct option is C I love playing video games. I love watching television.A compound sentence is made up of two independent clauses, which are complete sentences on their own. By copulative compound sentences, we refer to those clauses which are mere additions to each other, as a part of a whole sentence. They do not affect each other in terms of meaning. Conjunctions that add such clauses include also, and, too and so on.From the options, C contains sentences which do not show any relation between them, hence the copulative conjunction "and" can be used to connect them as one sentence. So option C is correct. Options A and D express a contrast while option B expresses an inference. These options express a relation between the clauses. They are not additions to each other. Hence options A, B and D are incorrect.English
