Today we are learning about clauses of sentences that give results.
Vocabulary similarity warning:
Clause = a part/section of a sentence
Cause = Something that produces a result (Heavy rain was the cause of the flood.)
Read the following example sentence.
Large numbers of people complained about the tax, which lead the government to change the law.
How do we use a which clause of result?
Using this type of structure shows the examiner that you have good control of high level grammar, which will benefit your grammar band score in both speaking and writing.
(Bonus: Can you spot the result clause in the previous sentence?)
Combine the following pairs of sentences with a which clause. You may need to include a verb such as 'means' or 'makes' to complete some of the sentences.
1. I have to check my spelling after I write something. This slows down my writing.
To turn this into one sentence with a which clause we can write:
I have to check my spelling after I write something, which slows down my writing.
