Since, whether, and accordingly are examples of which type pf single words? A. common, or basic, single words B. compare/contrast words C. cause-effect words D. temporal sequencing words - C. Cause-effect words. Signal words give the reader hints about the purpose of a particular passage.

The warning against smoking may have been tacit, but Beryl instinctively knew that her mother wanted her to avoid picking up the habit. A. complicated B. empty C wordy D. unstated - D.
