could you pl explain how to make use of so long as,as long as, provided,on condition imagine, suppose , what if , i wonder .
Most of the time, "as long as" and "so long as" are pretty much interchangeable:
fourth question here
So are "provided that" and "on condition" -- they all set up conditions upon which the main clause's statement would be true.
Two others in your list are verbs, and they are handled differently:
~ Imagine that you are a father with three teenagers living at home.
~ Suppose that you are a father with three teenagers living at home.
But these are different still:
~ What if you were a father with three teenagers living at home?
~ I wonder what life is like for a father with three teenagers living at home.
I hope this makes sense!
