Conditional sentences are used to describe the consequences of a specific action, or the dependency between events or conditions. Conditional sentences consist of an independent clause and a dependent clause.
<Dependent Clause> = ("if" | "when") <Declarative Sentence> <Independent Clause> = <Declarative Sentence> | <Interrogative Sentence> <Conditional Sentence> = <Dependent Clause>"," <Independent Clause> | <Independent Clause> <Dependent Clause>
Note: When the Independent Clause consists of an Interrogative Sentence, the question mark is placed at the end of the conditional sentence.
In the following example, the dependent clause contains a compound sentence:Example: If the sun is too hot and you don't have an umbrella, you will get burned.
