Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    I live in Clawson, Michigan.

    • A.

      Sentence

    • B.

      Fragment

    Correct Answer
    A. Sentence
    Explanation
    The given statement "I live in Clawson, Michigan" is a complete thought that expresses a complete idea. It has a subject ("I") and a predicate ("live in Clawson, Michigan"). Therefore, it is a sentence rather than a fragment, which is an incomplete thought or phrase that lacks a subject or predicate.

  • 2. 

    Went to bed.

    • A.

      Sentence

    • B.

      Fragment

    Correct Answer
    B. Fragment
    Explanation
    The given phrase "Went to bed" does not form a complete sentence as it lacks a subject. It is a fragment because it is missing the necessary components to express a complete thought. A complete sentence requires a subject (who or what is performing the action) and a verb (the action itself). In this case, there is no subject mentioned, making it a sentence fragment.

    Had fun on the playground at recess.

    • A.

      Sentence

    • B.

      Fragment

    Correct Answer
    B. Fragment
    Explanation
    The given sentence "Had fun on the playground at recess." is a fragment because it lacks a subject. It begins with a verb phrase "Had fun" but does not have a subject to complete the sentence. A complete sentence requires both a subject and a predicate, which is missing in this case. Therefore, the correct answer is "Fragment."

      Fragment

    Correct Answer
    A. Sentence
    Explanation
    The given statement "We went to see the Red Wings play hockey" is a complete sentence because it contains a subject ("We") and a predicate ("went to see the Red Wings play hockey"). It expresses a complete thought and can stand alone as a grammatically correct statement.

    We watched the clouds go by in the sky.

    • A.

      Sentence

    • B.

      Fragment

    Correct Answer
    A. Sentence
    Explanation
    The given statement "We watched the clouds go by in the sky" is a complete thought that expresses a subject (we) and a verb (watched). It also includes an object (the clouds) and a prepositional phrase (in the sky) that provides additional information. Therefore, it meets the criteria of a sentence, as it can stand alone and convey a complete idea.

    Looks like a pumpkin!

    • A.

      Sentence

    • B.

      Fragment

    Correct Answer
    B. Fragment
    Explanation
    The given statement "Looks like a pumpkin!" is a sentence fragment because it does not have a complete subject and verb. It lacks a subject that performs the action and a verb that shows the action being performed. It is an incomplete thought and does not express a complete idea on its own. Hence, it is classified as a fragment.

    Correct Answer
    A. Sentence
    Explanation
    The given statement "Grandma thinks I am smart" is a complete thought that expresses a subject (Grandma) and a predicate (thinks I am smart). It contains a subject and a verb, making it a complete sentence rather than a sentence fragment.

    Miss him when he leaves.

    Correct Answer
    B. Fragment
    Explanation
    The given sentence "Miss him when he leaves" is a fragment because it lacks a subject. It is missing a subject that would complete the sentence and make it a complete thought or statement. A complete sentence would have a subject (who or what the sentence is about) and a predicate (what the subject is doing or being). In this case, the subject is missing, making it a fragment.
