    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Chien lives with his wife, two sons, and three daughters." and "Chien lives with his wife, two sons and three daughters." These answers are correct because they use proper punctuation to separate the items in the list. In English, when listing multiple items, it is common to use commas to separate them. In this case, the list includes Chien's wife, two sons, and three daughters. The use of commas before "and" helps to clarify that the last two items in the list are separate entities.

In this context, it implies that because the weather was nice, the logical conclusion is that the class was held outside. The word "because" suggests a reason or cause, "because of" indicates a cause-and-effect relationship, and "since" implies a reason or time.
