Questions and Answers

    TWhich of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      Tom Mary Eve and Ray won prizes at the fair.

    • B.

      Tom, Mary, Eve, and Ray won prizes at the fair.

    Correct Answer
    B. Tom, Mary, Eve, and Ray won prizes at the fair.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "Tom, Mary, Eve, and Ray won prizes at the fair." This sentence is written correctly because it uses commas to separate the names of the individuals who won prizes. Commas are used to separate items in a list, and in this case, the names of the individuals are listed as separate items.

    HWhich of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      After eating the tuna and jam sandwich I felt sick.

    • B.

      After eating the tuna and jam sandwich, I felt sick.

    Correct Answer
    B. After eating the tuna and jam sandwich, I felt sick.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "After eating the tuna and jam sandwich, I felt sick." This sentence is written correctly because it includes a comma after the phrase "tuna and jam sandwich" to separate it from the main clause "I felt sick." The comma is necessary to indicate a pause and clarify the structure of the sentence.

    EWhich of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident.

    • B.

      Luckily no one was hurt in the accident.

    Correct Answer
    A. Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident." The sentence is written correctly because it includes a comma after the introductory word "Luckily." This comma is necessary to separate the introductory word from the rest of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      The answer I suppose will never be known.

    • B.

      The answer, I suppose, will never be known.

    Correct Answer
    B. The answer, I suppose, will never be known.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The answer, I suppose, will never be known." This sentence is written correctly because it includes the necessary punctuation marks. The commas are used to set off the phrase "I suppose" as nonessential information, providing additional context to the sentence. The sentence also follows the standard subject-verb-object structure, making it grammatically accurate.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      St Margaret's school which is on Peter Street is having a bake sale.

    • B.

      St Margaret's school, which is on Peter Street, is having a bake sale.

    Correct Answer
    B. St Margaret's school, which is on Peter Street, is having a bake sale.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "St Margaret's school, which is on Peter Street, is having a bake sale." This sentence is written correctly because it uses commas to set off the nonessential clause "which is on Peter Street." This clause provides additional information about the location of St Margaret's school but is not necessary for the basic meaning of the sentence. The use of commas indicates that the information is extra and can be omitted without changing the main message of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      The runners all crossed the finish line, but they were exhausted.

    • B.

      The runners all crossed the finish line but, they were exhausted.

    Correct Answer
    A. The runners all crossed the finish line, but they were exhausted.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The runners all crossed the finish line, but they were exhausted." This sentence is written correctly because it uses a comma before the coordinating conjunction "but" to separate two independent clauses. The comma is necessary to indicate a pause and to show that the second clause is contrasting or opposing the first clause. The second sentence is incorrect because it places a comma after "finish line" and before "but," which creates a comma splice error.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      Maria and her friends, play soccer every Sunday.

    • B.

      Maria and her friends play soccer every Sunday.

    Correct Answer
    B. Maria and her friends play soccer every Sunday.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Maria and her friends play soccer every Sunday." This sentence is written correctly because it follows the subject-verb agreement rule. The subject "Maria and her friends" is plural, so the verb "play" is also in its plural form. The sentence is also punctuated correctly, with a period at the end.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following sentences is written CORRECTLY?

    • A.

      The hungry crowd emptied the cooler and raided the fridge.

    • B.

      The hungry crowd emptied the cooler, and raided the fridge.

    Correct Answer
    A. The hungry crowd emptied the cooler and raided the fridge.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The hungry crowd emptied the cooler and raided the fridge." This sentence is written correctly because it uses a coordinating conjunction "and" to join two independent clauses. The comma before the coordinating conjunction is not necessary in this case because the two clauses are short and closely related.
