    Without the verb (C), there is no verb for the first clause.

    Right! But a verb can be put at start of sentence directly?

    Re: Adjective participles question

    Yes it can. This is the imperative mood where the subject "you" is implied.

    'Considering the difficulties involved in the performance of the task, it will really take time and patience.'
    Can 'Considering' be used here?

    Not a teacher.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello, Kiann:

    If you make up similar sentences, then you might find it easier to understand why C is correct.

    Here are some that I have made up:

    1. Visit Paris just one time, and (then) you will understand why it is such a popular destination for tourists.
    2. Eat at James's Bistro, and (then) you will know why it takes a month to get a reservation.
    3. Disagree with the manager just once, and (then) you will discover why everyone fears him.


    James
