  1. Here in these two sentences, time is not there but a condition. When shows time not condition. Therefore the conjunction if is suitable not when.
  2. Both the sentences are in contrast. But is good to use in the sentence as conjunction. But their order is not suitable. That is why we need to change their order.
  3. There is a causal relationship between these two sentences. But the conjunction because is used with the wrong sentence. It should not be with the clause that shows the result. It should be with the clause that shows the reason. Therefore, it is good the use because with the second clause.
  4. And should be in the middle of two and two. So the sentence two and two make four is correct.
  5. Poverty and honesty cannot come together. These two things are always in contrast. Therefore the sentence needs the conjunction but.
