Which of the following sentences contains a weak clause?
- She is hungry but she’s not going to eat.
- Although she is hungry, she is not going to eat.
- She said she is feeling hungry, but she is not going to eat.
- After we had lunch she told me she was hungry but wouldn’t eat.
Answer: ”Although she is hungry, she is not going to eat.” is correct. A weak clause begins with words such as although, since, if, when, and because. Another hallmark of the weak clause is that it can not stand on its own.
