    Punctuating Sentences
    Without a doubt, cramming for the test. This is an incomplete sentence because it doesn't have a subject or verb. How can you make it a complete sentence?

    # 6. He took the curve too sharply, it caused an accident.
    This is run-on sentence. A colon is not the correct punctuation to correct it.

    # 7. Punctuation—Colon
    The ingredients for my favorite grilled sandwich are: peanut butter and bananas.
    A colon shouldn't be used before two simple complements.
