Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A comma splice sentence is also a type of run-on sentence with two independent clauses fused together awkwardly. For example:

"Alfred is a dog, he likes to eat biscuits."

You can fix this problem by adding a period where the comma is and starting a new sentence, adding a semicolon where the comma is and starting a new sentence, or adding a transitional expression like "however" or "moreover".

Therefore, the answer here is all of the above.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
