      Conjunction Rule #02. A comma is not used when the coordinator does not join two independent clauses.
For example:
·         I like oranges and mangoes.
·         Our car arrived on time but at a wrong parking area.

Note: In these sentences, conjunctions do not join two independent clauses. In the first sentence, it joins two words and in the second sentence it joins a preposition phrase.

Students’ Task:
Ask students to rewrite the following sentences without including a comma:
·         John and, I are friends
·         He hasn’t arrived, yet
·         The President, and the Prime Minister arrived on time
·         Some students are, so creative
·         Mariam clever but, lazy
