In the sentence You may have an apple or an orange but you can't have both. Where would the commas be?

Answered by MathG33k

Between the or and apple and also the orange and but

Answered by TacoGod

The comma would end up between but and orange."You may have an apple or an orange, but you can't have both."This is because you're coming to a conjunction, which usually has a comma preceding, or coming before, it.
