I have a few questions about grammar
1, Does a sentence that starts of with "if" an independent sentence or a dependant?
2, Does a sentence that starts of with "in order to" an independent sentence or a dependant?
2, is there a comma before “instead of” and “rather than”?
3, is there a comma before in order to that is not starting a sentence.
