How can the sentences be joined?

Postby kohyoongliat » Wed Feb 08, 2012 3:40 am

You must ask your mother for permission. You cannot go out.

How can the sentences be combined with 'Unless'?

Unless you ask your mother for permission, you cannot go out.

Unless you have asked your mother for permission, you cannot go out.

Thanks.

Both possible, but the first is more natural.
