    which conjunction : and, or, but, so ?

    "At airports and bus stations, watch your luggage at all times, ..... don't let it out of your sight."
    What is the best conjunction to fill in the blanks : "and", "but", "or", or "so" ?
    I think "so" is the most logical choice, but is it the only possible choice ?

    Re: which conjunction : and, or, but, so ?

    I wouldn't use a conjunction at all in that context.

    'At airports and bus stations, watch your luggage at all times; don't let it out of your sight.'

    As you're saying the same thing twice, only and would make any sense at all, though it's redundant.

    So is definitely wrong.
