Question Description

I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.

Sentences that include two or more clauses with no connecting words or punctuation are known as:

a. Fragments

b. run-ons

c. comma splices

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

the answer is B) run-ons


A run-on occurs when two sentences are run together without the proper punctuation and/or connecting 

words. One type of run-on, the fused sentence, occurs when two sentences are written together without any 

punctuation at all. Another type, the comma splice, occurs when a comma is used between two sentences 

without any connecting word (such as "and, but, or, nor, for, so, yet").
