    Correct Answer
    C. The 123 team, skilled and full of energy, stayed awake through out the night waiting for nothing to happen at all.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The 123 team, skilled and full of energy, stayed awake through out the night waiting for nothing to happen at all." This is the correct answer because it properly uses punctuation (commas) to separate the different elements of the sentence. The phrase "skilled and full of energy" is set off by commas to indicate that it is a non-essential element of the sentence. Additionally, the phrase "throughout the night" is spelled correctly, and the word "nothing" is spelled correctly as well.

    Correct Answer
    B. The company's CFO, Ana Barbara Rosales, will not be at the office today.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The company's CFO, Ana Barbara Rosales, will not be at the office today." This answer is correct because it correctly uses the possessive form of "company's" to indicate that the CFO belongs to the company. It also correctly uses commas to set off the name "Ana Barbara Rosales" as an appositive, providing additional information about the CFO. Finally, it states that the CFO will not be at the office today, indicating her absence.

    A. Don't place the raw meat on the vegetable counter when you are going to cut it.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Don't place the raw meat on the vegetable counter when you are going to cut it." This is the correct sentence because it uses the contraction "Don't" instead of "Dont" or "Don,t" which are incorrect spellings. Additionally, it correctly uses the word "on" to indicate the location of the raw meat, and it uses the word "when" to indicate the timing of cutting the meat.

    The correct answer is "We will not discuss the new store hours with employees because it's their responsibility to read their emails." The word "it's" is the contraction of "it is" and is used to indicate that something belongs to or is associated with a thing previously mentioned. In this case, "it's" is used to show that the responsibility of reading emails belongs to the employees.
