Grammar Review: Purpose and Result Clauses

The grammar preparation quiz covers the information shown below; make sure you study this information carefully before you try to take the quiz. When you are ready, log in to Blackboard to take the quiz. You can take the online quiz as often as you want; the computer will record your most recent score. The quiz will be available until Wednesday midnight.

Purpose and Result Clauses. Make sure you review the use of the subjunctive in purpose clauses (introduced by ut or ne) and result clauses (introduced by ut or ut non). It is especially important to understand the rules for "sequence of tense," which explains why you will find only present or imperfect subjunctive verbs in purpose and result clauses.

For the quiz, you will need to supply the correct form of the verb (in the subjunctive).

Example: (reddo) Ovis lanam suam vendidit, ut pecuniam ________.

Answer: redderet
