Question description

Match the run-on sentence solution to the correct run-on sentence

problem: Two main clauses with no comma before the coordinating

conjunction

     Solutions:

     a.  Insert a comma before the coordinating conjunction to

         separate the two main clauses.

     b.  Separate the main clauses with an end mark of punctuation,

         such as a period or a question mark, and begin the second

         sentence with a capital letter, or separate the main clauses

         with a semicolon, or insert a comma and a coordinating

         conjunction between the main clauses.

     c.  Replace the comma with an end mark of punctuation such as a

         period or question mark, and begin the new sentence with a

         capital letter, or place a semicolon between the two main

         clauses, or insert a coordinating conjunction after the comma.


Match the lack of subject-verb agreement solution to the correct

lack of subject-verb agreement problem: A subject that is separated

from the verb by an intervening prepositional phrase

     Solutions:

     a.  Determine whether the noun of amount refers to one unit and is

         therefore singular or whether it refers to a number of

         individual units and is therefore plural.

     b.  Make the verb agree with the subject, which is never the

         object of the preposition.

     c.  If the collective noun refers to a group as a whole, use a

         singular verb, or if the collective noun refers to each member

         of a group individually, use a plural verb.

     d.  Ignore the predicate nominative, and make the verb agree with

         the subject of the sentence.

     e.  In an inverted sentence look for the subject after the verb.

         Then make sure the verb agrees with the subject.
