CONJUNCTIVE, contracts, wills, instruments. A term in grammar used to designate particles which connect one word to another, or one proposition to another proposition.
     2. There are many cases in law, where the conjunctive and is used for the disjunctive or, and vice versa.
     3. An obligation is conjunctive when it contains several things united by a conjunction to indicate that they are all equally the object of the matter or contract for example, if I promise for a lawful consideration, to deliver to you my copy of the Life of Washington, my Encyclopaedia, and my copy of the History of the United States, I am then bound to deliver all of them and cannot be discharged by delivering one only. There are, according to Toullier, tom. vi. n. 686, as many separate obligations Is there are things to be delivered, and the obligor may discharge himself pro tanto by delivering either of them, or in case of refusal the tender will be valid. It is presumed, however, that only one action could be maintained for the whole. But if the articles in the agreement had not been enumerated; I could not, according to Toullier, deliver one in discharge of my contract, without the consent of the creditor; as if, instead of enumerating the, books above mentioned, I had bound myself to deliver all my books, the very books in question. Vide Disjunctive, Item, and the case, there cited; and also, Bac. Ab. Conditions, P; 1 Bos. & Pull. 242; 4 Bing. N. C. 463 S. C. 33 E. C. L. R. 413; 1 Bouv. Inst. n. 687-8.

Subject 25 emitted a low response rate and extended PRPs across FI and conjunctive schedules.
For Subjects 37 and 38 response rates were low across all trials on the conjunctive schedule (the first 1-s delay occurred on the first trial for S38, and on the second trial for S37).
A 1-s delay did not occur for either of these subjects on the conjunctive schedule.
The conjunctive schedule, however, produced consistent low-rate performances for most subjects, even when they were given ratio-based verbal instructions.
Consider the general change in performance in the FI to conjunctive condition.
It should be noted, however, that variation in the frequency of response-reinforcer contiguity was not the only change in response- reinforcer relations that could occur across the FI and conjunctive schedules.
