When we write sentences, we often link two ideas with the words ‘and’ or ‘but’. The word ‘and’ adds detail to what you’ve already said but the word ‘but’ disagrees. Every sentence you write must always start with a capital letter and period.

1.
Finish the sentence: Karen had to pick. She could go to the store…
or she could drive to the movies.
but she could drive to the movies.
and she could drive to the movies.
she could drive to the movies.
Since Karen is having to pick, the conjunction should be “or.”
2.
Finish this sentence: I like chocolate...
and it's bad for me.
but it's bad for me.
or it's bad for me.
it's bad for me.
The first clause is 'I like chocolate'. We could end the sentence there but we then add to it by saying chocolate is bad. Because the second clause disagrees with us eating it, we use the word 'but'.
3.
Finish this sentence: 'The baby was tired...'
but he fell asleep.
or he fell asleep.
and he fell asleep.
he fell asleep.
We are adding information to the fact that the baby is tired. Falling asleep agrees with the first clause of being tired.
4.

Using the conjunction “since” means that the author is giving a reason for something he or she did.

A car would break down after someone bought it.
6.

but tiptoed up the stairs.
or tiptoed up the stairs.
and tiptoed up the stairs.
tiptoed up the stairs.
We must always end a sentence with a period.

An exception is needed in this sentence, and the word “unless” refers to an exception.
