Which revision corrects the punctuation errors in this complex sentence with two dependent clauses? We picked these apples, when we went upstate which was on Tuesday. Remove the comma after “apples” and put a comma after “upstate.” Leave the comma after “apples” and add a comma after “upstate.” Remove the comma after “apples” and do not add any other commas. Remove the comma after “apples” and add a comma after “was.”


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.

USING SEMICOLONS AND COLONS CORRECTLY Correct the punctuation in the following sentences by re-writing the sentence, adding semicolons and colons where they are needed and by changing other punctuation and capitalization as needed. Example 1. The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. Corrected version: The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II: coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. In Washington, D.C., we visited three museums in a single day the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.


Answer:

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

Explanation:

The correct rewriting of the sentence will be –

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

The use of the comma right after Washington is wrong as it is the name of a single particular place so it should instead be written as Washington D. C.

Also, a semicolon has to be inserted in between day and the. Since the sentence lists a number of places, the use of a colon is necessary to show the list of the places visited.

So, the changes in the sentence are-

(a) remove the comma (,) in between Washington and D.

(b) put a colon (:) right next to the word “day”.

USING SEMICOLONS AND COLONS CORRECTLY Correct the punctuation in the following sentences by re-writing the sentence, adding semicolons and colons where they are needed and by changing other punctuation and capitalization as needed. The Fourth of July parade included the following floats, which all had a patriotic theme, marching bands, clowns, jugglers, and other circus performers, and antique cars, trucks, and other vehicles.


Answer:

The Fourth of July parade included the following floats, which all had a patriotic theme: marching bands, clowns, jugglers, and other circus performers; and antique cars, trucks, and other vehicles.

Explanation:

Colons‘ function is to introduce an item or a series of items when they are preceded by a complete thought (sentence), such as it is used in the sentence “The Fourth of July parade included the following floats, which all had a patriotic theme:” which it’s a complete thought.

As for commas, one of their functions is to separate items in a list such as in “marching bands, clowns, jugglers, and other circus performers”.

Likewise, semicolons can also be used to separate items in a list when the list items already contain commas. In this case, semicolons are used to  show which items are grouped together, and to outrank the existing commas, such as it is employed in the following list: “marching bands, clowns, jugglers, and other circus performers; and antique cars, trucks, and other vehicles.” Here, the semicolon works as a separator of the two lists.

The error in grammar: it help

Correct verb form: it helps

Explanation:

In the simple present tense, third-person singular pronouns, like she, he and it, use conjugated verbs formed by the base form of a verb and the affix -s, -es, or -ies. For example: helps, thinks, cries, watches. In the excerpt provided, the error is in the verb help because it is not correctly conjugated for the pronoun it: it is missing an s at the end.

Right answer:

Decidimos venir a este restaurante porque mi jefe me lo recomendó

In this lesson, we have two important words, me and lo. So me is the indirect object pronoun for the first person singular. An Indirect Object is the person, animal or thing that receives the action of a verb, that is, the recipient of the direct object. On the other hand, the word lo represents the direct object pronoun for the third person singular. A direct object pronoun replaces a direct object, that is a noun that directly receives the action of a verb in a sentence.

Which of the following sentences has errors in spelling, capitalization, or punctuation? Ernie, Tom, and Melissa have created web pages as their final project. The Statue Of Liberty is on our school seal. Elmer’s tie was askew, and his shoes needed to be polished. “Rip Van Winkle,” by Washington Irving, is a very imaginative story.

I guess this also depends on what the “Advanced Reading Skills” lessons talks about, but don’t think of it as “really hard”! Work on one word, one phrase, one sentence, and you’ll start making progress. =) 

In general, when translating, the first thing you’ll have to do is to understand the paragraph, but you’re right, this isn’t that easy a paragraph to translate. You could use an English dictionary, or a bilingual dictionary (http://www.nciku.comis good for English-Chinese) to help you. While you’re doing this, try to pick out important words and translate them first, and see if you could understand what each sentence means. 

Sometimes, words may have multiple meanings or be used as metaphors – for example, “amputated” means “having been cut off”, but in your 2nd sentence, it means that the poet should not be condemned and criticised to the point where he is treated as having no value. 

Finally, after you’ve translated the text, don’t forget to read it to check if it makes sense in the language you’re using – and if it makes for smooth reading!

Rules of punctuation, capitalization, and spacing of written words were developed ______.


Answer:

False

Explanation:

A noun clause is a dependent clause (a group of words containing a subject and a verb and that can not stand on its own) that acts as a noun in a sentence, and they tend to start with how, that, what, whatever, when, where, whether, which, whichever, who, whoever, whom, whomever, and why. Words like “because”, “as if”, and “although” do not introduce these type of clauses.

Examples of sentences with noun clauses are the following (noun clauses underlined):

Whoever wants cake should ask me for a piece of it.

Tomorrow, you can do whatever you want.

I don’t understand why you came.

D) the tone of the piece, and e) the perspective or point of view. Be sure that your paragraph has a topic sentence that identifies the subject, and provide evidence (quotes) from the excerpt to support each part of the analysis.
“Then I started back, with more fear than food, and went to meet the people whom I had left behind, with the greatest haste I could make. I overtook them after two day’s march and went with them till we had passed the desert and arrived at their home. Here I was not made welcome as previously, because the men as well as the women indulged in much weeping for the persons killed at Cíbola. Without tarrying I hastened in fear from that people and that valley. The first day I went ten leagues, then I went eight and again ten leagues, without stopping till I had passed the second desert. On my return, although I was not without fear, I determined to approach the open tract, situated at the end of the mountain ranges, of which I said above that I had some account. As I came near, I was informed that it is peopled for many days’ journey towards the east, but I dared not enter it, because it seemed to me that we must go to colonize and to rule that other country of the seven cities and the kingdoms I have spoken of, and that then one could see it better. So I forebore to risk my person and left it alone to given an account of what I had seen. However, I saw, from the mouth of the tract seven moderate-sized towns at some distance, and further a very fresh valley of very good land, whence rose much smoke. I was informed that there is much gold in it and that the natives of it deal in vessels and jewels for the ears and little plates with which they scrape themselves to relieve themselves of sweat, and that these people will not consent to trade with those of the other part of the valley; but I was not able to learn the cause for this. Here I placed two crosses and took possession of all this plain and valley in the same manner as I had done with the other possessions, according to my instructions.”
