Final Theoretical Exam:4. Conditionals

The fourth set of question in the exam involve you proving you have understood the form of conditional sentences.

As in the sample exam, you will be asked to form conditional sentences with the help of two sets of words. Sometimes the "If/if" clause will come first, sometimes it will come second. It does not matter how you construct the sentences as long as they makes sense.

See the following:

1. new shoes / win the race
2. get married / finish medicine

3. stop smoking / lung cancer

Notice that in the two sets of words above there is always a set that is more like a cause, and a set that is more like an effect i.e "stop smoking" = cause, "lung cancer" = effect. The "if" clause is almost always attached to the cause.

Possible answers are in the comments.
