Fill in the blank: If I ____ too much, I won't have enough energy.
The first conditional is a sentence with an 'if' clause and a 'will' clause. The 'if' clause states a condition, and the 'will' clause states the result. Comparatives show how two things are different. Use 'too' to show something is too much, 'enough' to show something is enough, and 'as' to show something is the same. Knowing when and how to use conditionals and comparatives will help you explain your ideas clearly!
