    Is "in order to" a conjunction?

    Dear teachers,

    Could any one please explain the definition "in order to"? with examples, I could understand.

    In order to earn money, I should work hard. In this sentence I can understand the core meaning.

    But I'd like to know, how "in order to" is classified. Either adverb or conjunction. In which pattern it comes under?

    THANKS

    Hi


    In order to is a conjunction phrase denoting purpose. - a subordinating conjunction.


    I am going to study hard in order to obtain better grades.
