    • PASSAGE:  I know you can do well on this quiz but you will need to try your best.  It is important that you learn how to punctuate your sentences correctly so the reader can clearly understand your ideas.  A comma splice and a run-on are errors, it is not good to have them in your paper.  You need to find them and fix them in your drafts.  It is okay to initially have errors but make sure you find them in your draft.  Keep practicing, you will be able to write correctly.
