Answer

Answer: A B
Conjunctions are words that link other words, phrases, or clauses together. Subordinating conjunctions join independent and dependent clauses. Subordinating conjunction can signal a cause-and-effect relationship, a contrast, or some other kind of relationship between the clauses. Common subordinating conjunctions are because, since, as, although, though, while, and whereas. These show relation in time, place or condition.After is used for 'later than the time that / later than when'. In the given sentence it is inferred that Eunice had turned on the television subsequently after finishing dinner i.e. after dinner. Thus Option A is correct and no change is needed. Since is used to introduce a statement that explains the reason for another statement. In the given sentence Eunice finishing her dinner explains the reason why she turned on the television. Thus since' can b used and Option B is also correct. Though means despite the fact that and is used to introduce a fact that makes another fact unusual or surprising. since there is nothing unusual or surprising that the second clause introduces about the first clause, Option C is incorrect.The conjunction 'whenever' means 'every time that' or 'any time that'. We often use whenever with the present simple. Option D is incorrect as the sentence is in simple past tense and talks about a specifictime and not 'every other time'.
