Put the word into a sentence to show that you understand the meaning. If you are unsure, look the word up in a dictionary.

Can you write a relative clause using who, which, where, when, whose and that?
Can you use a fronted adverbial at the beginning of your sentence?
Can you create an expanded noun phrase or use a modal verb in your sentence?
