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.

Hey there!

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

Which of the following is not something you should check during the revision phase of writing your research paper


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

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.

Answer:

The Embargo Act placed a restriction on trade after European ships harassed U.S. vessels.

Explanation:

The Embargo Act, adopted by the United States Congress in 1807, imposed a full embargo on the French Empire involved in the war and Great Britain.

The embargo was a response to violations of the neutrality of the United States by seizing US merchant ships and merchandise as a prism by the navies of both European countries. In addition, the Royal Navy used the forced incorporation of American citizens into the crews of warships. Both Great Britain and France resorted to plundering American units as a way to sustain the war effort. The Chesapeake Leopard Affair was the brightest and most painful example of this policy for the citizens of the young American nation.

President Thomas Jefferson acted prudently in trying to match the response to the public’s agitation. His recommendation was economic warfare, not military mobilization. Congress passed the Embargo Act on December 22, 1807. The expected effects of this drastic move were to force both France and Britain to withdraw from robbery activity, forced enlistment and to respect the neutrality of the United States. The embargo turned out to be an impractical measure, as it was both a diplomatic and economic failure. After its introduction, it imposed great burdens on the American economy and citizens.

The extensive circumvention of the restrictions on maritime and land trade by American merchants and the legal loopholes in the act have significantly reduced the embargo. British merchants have appropriated the lucrative trade routes left by Americans. Demand for English goods in South America increased, which compensated for the losses suffered as a result of the embargo.

The bill also undermined the national unity, causing strong protests, especially in New England’s commercial centers. It intensified support for the Federalist Party and contributed with it to obtaining a large number of seats in Congress.

On March 1, 1809, after 15 months, in the last days of President Jefferson’s term, the embargo was canceled.

Read the sentence from an argumentative essay about the economy. The unstable economy caused lots of people to lose their jobs. Which revision exhibits the best word choice for the underlined portion of the sentence? a.chaos with people losing their jobs b.lots of people to get fired c.a drastic increase in unemployment d.a change in the number of people employed


The best answer is A because distinctive and prominent both similarly mean “important.” 

B won’t work because although the paragraph does go on to tell the readers what the trunk does, the two words themselves doesn’t tell the readers anything about the usage of the trunk.

C won’t work because the elephants not only use their trunks when they’re young, but also as they get older. 

D won’t work because the words doesn’t tell readers what the trunk looks like. The words aren’t really descriptive words.
