where is semi-colon used?

The most common way to use a semicolon is to connect two independent clauses. We eliminate the conjunctions like and, but ,etc and place a semi colon.

eg. Mary drives a mercedes ,but John drives a chevrolet.

In this sentence, there is a conjunction called but.If we eliminate the but and the comma, and put a semicolon, the sentence will be like this

Mary drives a mercedes; John drives a chevrolet.
