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.
