    About Conjuction

    Hi, I'm Jiyeon.
    I'd like to know the use of conjunction in a sentence.

    Can I omit the subject when two complete sentences should be connected, but we can see what the subjuct is?

    ex. This is just common sense, as is so often.

    Is it a right sentence?
    I think 'This is just common sense, as it is so often.' is the right one, cause we must have complete sentences when connecting two sentences usuing conjunctions.
    I'd like to know whether there are some examples that we can omit the subject. (when connecting complete sentences)

    Thanks for reading.

    In your example, no. There are two possible versions:

    This is just common sense, as it so often is. (Note the position of "is")
    This is just common sense, as is so often the case.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
