    Your answer:

    This one is correct as it is.

  • Grammar - ,

    It seems that, many times, you're simply rewriting the sentence or omitting the situation in which you would have to use the punctuation in question, where, if I'm not mistaken, you should be changing the sentence so that the punctuation given is used correctly.

    "Punctuating Sentences:
    He took the curve too sharply, it caused an accident.

    Your answer:
    He took the curve too sharply, causing an accident."

    Try: "He took the curve too sharply; it caused an accident."

    "Punctuation-Dash
    Pens come in all sphaes-my favorite is an ergonomic one shaped like a wishbone.
    Your answer:
    Pens come in all shapes. My favorite is an ergonomic on shaped like a wishbone."

    Try: "Pens come in all shapes -- my favorite is an ergonomic one shaped like a wishbone."


    "Punctuation-Hyphen:
    The high rise building is located at 3114 Main Street.

    Your Answer:
    No Change"

    Try: "The high-rise..."

    Outside of the punctuation ones:

    "Your answer:
    Eating fresh organges , can often help keep away the cold virus."

    The comma there isn't necessary.

    "Inclusive Language-Nonracist and nonagist Language:
    We need more manpower to finish the job on schedule."

    I can't see how that's at all racist or ageist -- sexist, perhaps, so if we're being generally PC here it needs a change, but 'power' doesn't seem to fit well. How about 'workers' or 'employees'?

    Sorry, I have to go now; I imagine someone else can help with the rest.
