Run-on Sentences Quiz Questions And Answers - Quiz

Can you easily identify Run-on or fused sentences? The amazing run-on sentences quiz with well-researched questions and answers checks if you can identify (including comma splices) and fix such sentences if present. Run-on sentences occur when two different sentences are connected improperly. For example, I love to read novels I would read one every day if I had the time. This is the first sentence, "I love to read novels," and "I would read one every day if I had the time" is the second one. Play the quiz and check your knowledge about these run-on sentences.
