Which sentence uses commas correctly? Carl could rope ride and herd for the ranch. Carl could rope, ride, and herd for the ranch.
The answer to your question would be that the revision that corrects the punctuation errors in the sentence is the following one: Remove the comma after “apples” and put a comma after “upstate.”
The first comma should be removed (the one after apples) because it provides information that is considered essential to the meaning of the sentence, it states the time when they picked the apples. Then, there should be a comma after “upstate” because the information that follows (a relative clause further specifying the date) is non essential. As such, it should be separated from the rest of the sentence.
Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule
A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.
B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.
C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.
D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.
Hope this helps
1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class.
Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.
You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website.
Personally I prefer fantasy novels;
Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery
Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.
notice, the concentration of alcohol in the 15% is, well, 0.15 :), so for a quantity of whatever, it’d be 0.15whatever
anyway, for water… water has no alcohol whatsoever, so the concentration is 0%, or 0/100 which is 0.00 or a flat 0
we know that we’ll be adding “x” water with the 14mL to get “y”, thus 14+x = y
and the concentrated quantities will also add up to -> 14(0.15) = 2.1, thus
2.1 + 0x = 0.07y
solve for “x”.
The sentence that correctly uses commas to separate items in the list is number 3, “The deacidification process preserves pages by neutralizing acid with magnesium oxide, raising the pH level of the paper, and minimizing the alkaline reserve.”
There are three things that preserve pages in the deacidification process:
- neutralizing acid with magnesium oxide
- raising the pH level of the paper
- minimizing the alkaline reserve
Therefore, these three items make up are list. Commas are used after every item in a list. However, a comma is not needed after the last item in a list. Of the available options only, number 3 uses the commas in the correct places as seen below:
“The deacidification process preserves pages by neutralizing acid with magnesium oxide, raising the pH level of the paper, and minimizing the alkaline reserve.”
Technically, number 4 could also be correct. An Oxford comma is the last comma in a list. Some people choose to not use the Oxford comma. It is generally accepted as correct, although it can sometimes cause confusion when not used. The elimination of the Oxford comma can be seen below:
The deacidification process preserves pages by neutralizing acid with magnesium oxide, raising the pH level of the paper and minimizing the alkaline reserve.
