    Welcome, Lilyofmay.

    We try not to do homework assignments for you, but if it's information on "so" you're looking for, here's a tutorial that might help. Click on the link below, then scroll down to the middle of the page, where it says, "Be careful of the conjunction SO."

    All the best

    Re: conjunction 'so'

    Which of the following sentences is correct?

    My number was so huge. I could not write it down on a piece of paper.
    My number was so huge, I could not write it down on a piece of paper.
    My number was so huge; I could not write it down on a piece of paper.

    "My number was so huge," does not seem like a complete thought to me.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***Yes, you are 100% correct: "My number was so huge" is usually not a complete thought. This kind of sentence is usually completed with a "that" sentence: My number was SO huge THAT I could not write it down on a piece of paper. Another example: It was SO hot (THAT I could fry an egg on the sidewalk).
