Practice: The Subjunctive in Adverbial Clauses


For each sentence, if it were to be translated into good Spanish, determine:

  1. If it contains a adverbial phrase or an adverbial clause or no-such-beast [if no-such-beast, go on to the next sentence]
  2. If an adverbial preposition or adverbial conjunction should be used
  3. If the action in the adverbial clause is anticipated/hypothetical or viewed as finished/customary
  4. If the subjunctive or indicative or infinitive is needed.
