    The correct answer is "only one" because traditionally, in written English, it is standard to have only one space between words.

Therefore, the most appropriate and widely accepted practice is to have only one space between words.

    • D.

      The word 'and' is not necessary.

    Correct Answer
    C. There is a comma missing.
    Explanation
    The use of commas in a sentence helps to separate items in a list, ensuring clarity and readability. In the sentence "I ate some cake, a banana, and an orange for breakfast," there are three items listed: "cake," "a banana," and "an orange." To indicate the separation between these items, commas are used. However, there is a missing comma after "banana," which leads to confusion and ambiguity. Adding a comma after "banana" clarifies the list and improves the sentence's structure. Therefore, the corrected sentence is: "I ate some cake, a banana, and an orange for breakfast."
