    The given sentence is a run-on sentence because it consists of two independent clauses joined together without proper punctuation or conjunction. The first independent clause is "Marlin sits quietly in class every day" and the second independent clause is "yet he still receives a high grade for his work." These two clauses should be separated by a comma and a coordinating conjunction, or they can be made into two separate sentences.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "My parents cam late to the game, but they arrived in time to see us win."

    Identify the main idea and/or thesis statement.For young children, losing privileges for short amounts of time can be very effective.  One way for this to happen is by using what is called “Time-Out.”  Time-Out means time away from all those fun things in a child’s life.  It is a way of disciplining your child without raising your hand or your voice.  Basically, Time-Out involves having your child sit in one place for a certain amount of time.  You can easily see that most kids wouldn’t like Time-Out because they would rather be doing fun things (Burke & Herron, 1996, p. 40).

    • A.

      Time-Out is not an effective way of disciplining children.

    • B.

      Time-Out is an effective way of disciplining children.

    • D.

      Time-Out means sitting in one place for a certain amount of time.

    Correct Answer
    B. Time-Out is an effective way of disciplining children.
    Explanation
    Yes, the first two sentences provide the topic: "Time-Out" and present the author's opinion that they are effective.

    a) Is not correct because it states the opposite of the author's opinion on time-out.
    b) Is correct.
    c) Is not correct. Spanking can not be the main idea because it is not addressed in the article.
    d) Is not correct because this is a supporting detail, not the main idea.
