I'll get you started.
A sentence fragment is a group of words that does not express a complete thought. For instance, in the first question, this is NOT a sentence fragment: B. Although he wanted to go with Molly, he went with Sue. It has an independent clause, "he went with Sue;" the first clause is a subordinate or dependent clause.
In the second problem, this is the only one that is NOT a sentence fragment: A. My friend is going to visit me next week.
Study this site about sentence fragments. Then try to do the rest of these yourself. If you post your answers, we'll be glad to check them for you.
