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

Which revision of the sentence is now properly punctuated? The peripheral nervous system—which is a network of nerves extending from your brain and spinal cord to all parts of your body carries signals back and forth. The peripheral nervous system (which is a network of nerves) extending from your brain and spinal cord to all parts of your body carries signals back and forth. The peripheral nervous system which is a network of nerves extending from your brain and spinal cord to all parts of your body carries signals back and forth. The peripheral nervous system—which is a network of nerves extending from your brain and spinal cord to all parts of your body—carries signals back and forth.


The correct answer is:

The sentence which accurately uses the homophones “it’s” or “its” is:

– As far as I know, it’s starting right after school.

Homophones are words which are pronounced the same, but differ in meaning and sometimes spelling too, as in this case.

The word It’s, is always short for It is (or it has, in informal speech). In the sentence chosen as accurately written it means it is (It’s) starting right after school.

The word Its, is a possessive pronoun; means belonging to it.

Therefore, the first sentence should have said: “its bone”; the second sentence: “It’s going to be”; and, the last sentence: its charger.

In order for us to answer this question, we must understand what the goal in the information given is. In essence, the article talks about a man, Edmud Spenser, a candidate for mayor in his city, whose home has been attacked with watermelons that have been launched at it, and his desire to pursue and punish the perpetrators, not as revenge, but because the law must be upheld at all times, regardless of circumstances. However, when we look at the language used, and the way the information is given, you can soon device the  true purpose behind it; besides telling the events that took place on the 27th of January, and against whom these acts were perpetrated, the language and manner of writing points the reader to understand that the purpose of this narration is not just merely to relate a fact, but rather, to focus the attention on two topics: first, the man whose house was attacked is a candidate for mayor of the city, and the second one, the way in which this candidate decides to act, putting the law above anything else. In the end, the reader can see, especially through the last two lines: “This illustrates his desire to uphold law and order in the city. This is precisely the kind of mayor this community could hold”, that the real purpose of this article is to: convince the audience to vote for Edmund Spencer, because through his actions, he showed that the city, and its laws, will always be safe in this man´s hands.
