If I said, "This business deal will be a success a victory a triumph if we are able to secure the contract."
Is it clear that the "if" clause applies to "This business deal with be a success a victory a triumph."
Or if one were to hear those words, would they think that the "if" clause only applies to "a triumph"?
My understanding is that the "if" is a subordinating conjunction that has to connect a dependent clause and a independent clause. Therefore, it is erroneous to conclude that the "if" conditional clause only applies to "a triumph" since "a triumph" is not a clause but rather just a noun and an article. Is my reasoning correct?
I would greatly appreciate some clarity on this question.
