Relative clauses are often included on this part of the exam, as are adjectives and adverbials.

There are also often questions on verb tenses, including the participle forms used in constructing the past perfect and present perfect tenses.

Conditional sentences, particularly the third conditional form, have commonly appeared on past exams.
