Question Description

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

a. Fragments

b. run-ons

c. comma splices

Tutor Answer

School: Boston College

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").

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.
