Need help on Grammar Homework pls...thank you so much

Pick the correct word.

The teacher needed (this/that) type of stencil.


(This/That) was the funniest skit I had ever seen.


Identify the parts of speech of the underlined words. (Write noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction, or interjection)


...obey your parents in all things....


And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors....


And as children pass the first years of their life with their parents, they may be continually learning...


But the reasonableness of this command to obey parents is clear and easily understood by children, even when quite young. 

(The word “But” is a start of the sentence according to the sentence above, so that is why I capitalized it. Reasonableness is a noun, so should it be preposition? Because “but” could be preposition or conjunction...)


Parents therefore are bound by duty and by right to govern their children; but the exercise for this right is to be regulated by affection.


(The word "but" for both sentences confuses me a lot because it could be preposition or conjunction...I don't know.)


And it came to pass on a certain day, as He was teaching, that....


He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might….

(This one confuses me a lot because the word "for" can also be preposition...or conjunction.)


What is the part of the speech of the word "But"?

He said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee....But that ye know that the Son of Man hath power upon earth to forgive sins. 

(The way of the sentence is exactly like that. There is “....” between “thee” and “But” in the text - just in case you think I skipped some words. “That” in this case is not a pronoun because it says “that ye.” “Ye” is aa] pronoun. Right? So, should “But” be conjunction in this case”?

For both, I think it is conjunction.

But as a preposition is rarely seen, so no.

No. It is only a conjunction in one of my examples. Another good test would be this: "I like meat, but I don't like fish." We would never say "I like meat except I don't like fish. However, I could say: I like everything but cauliflower OR I like everything except cauliflower. In your example "Parents therefore are bound by duty and by right to govern their children; but the exercise for this right is to be regulated by affection." would it make sense to replace but with except, or is the writer creating a contrast between the idea that parents must discipline their children; however, they must also be affectionate. By the way, the punctuation in your example is actually incorrect. When two independent clauses are joined with a semi-coon, a coordinating conjunction such as but is not used. Does that make sense?

I mean for my homework hahaha.... “Whatever God has commanded us to do, we must perform, without calling in question the propriety of the command. But the reasonableness of this command to obey parents is clear and easily understood by children, even when quite young.” I think this is a conjunction. Correct? “But” in this sentence is a start of a new sentence and paragraph..
