Combine each pair of sentences use and,but,or, to join the two predicates
The total suprised us. The total pleased us.
Use the same process you used earlier. Post your sentence, and I'll check it for you.
The total suprised us and pleased us.
Is this right?
The total suprised and pleased us.
You can make it even better by removing the first use of "us."
