Question:

How do you combine two independent clauses into one sentence?

Inactive
Patrick T.
Answer:

If a sentence has two independent clauses, they could be combined through several means. The first method is through the use of a coordinator conjunction such as For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet. For example, the sentence: "I was going to play outside, but it was raining" combines two independent clauses with the conjunction "but." If there is no coordinating conjunction, the independent clauses must be joined with a semi-colon. For example, "I was going to the store: it was closed." When making decisions about the correct answer on the SAT Writing section of the test, you can eliminate answers such as "independent clause; but independent clause" as you would not use a semi-colon with a coordinating conjunction.

Answer:

The Treaty of Westphalia ended the 30 Year's War in 1648. The war is predominantly thought of as being a religious war during the Reformation between Catholics and Protestants in Europe. The Treaty of Westphalia stipulated that states (rulers of states) could determine for themselves the religion that would be established in that state. The represents the emergence of the concept of national sovereignty and the rise of the modern nation-state - that states have control over what goes on within their borders. The Catholic Church could not dictate religion; the average person began to identify with their local sovereign rather than the Catholic Church.

Question:

Identify three advantages that the North had over the South during the Civil War?

Answer:

During the Civil War, the North had three significant advantages that aided in its victory of the South. Most of the nation's industrialized complex at the time was located in the North. The South was largely agrarian. This allowed the North to construct more manufactured products and war materials. Secondly, most the nation's railroads were located in the North. Railroads allowed the North to move troops and materials to the war more quickly than the South. Lastly, the North had control over the Navy, which allowed the North to initiate a naval blockade of Southern ports and prevent supplies from being potentially imported from other countries.
