    Given and provided

    The tour wasn't as pleasant as we thought it would be, ...... the coach broke down on the way.

    A. given that
    B. provided (that)

    Which one could fit here? (Would you please tell me the features of the word "given" in conditional sentences?)

    Re: Given and provided

    So I think only "given that" reads well here! Am I right? (after reading your recommended sites)
