What are conjunctions of time?

Average: 3.9 (37 votes)

A conjunction is a linking word such as and, or, but.

Conjunctions are used to connect words or sentences.

The words before, after, as, when, while, until, since, are also conjunctions. They tell when something happens, so they are called conjunctions of time.

For example: "Maggie could play the piano before she was five".

Use these conjunctions of time to complete the sentences:

while, before, as, when, since, until

 I reckon ,no. 7 can take "before" and no.3 can take "when"
