Errors in the use of punctuation marks - Semicolons and Colons
A.Three states have counties named Fairfield: Connecticut, Ohio, and South Carolina.
B.Sound may be used to link two scenes: wake-up music from a clock radio at the end of one scene becomes a song sung onstage at the start of the next.
C.Robert Redford was not the film maker's first choice to play the Sundance Kid: he got the part after Marlon Brando, Steve McQueen, and Warren Beaty had turned it down.
D.When mustaches are fashionable, orders increase for: mustache combs, brushes, and wax.
the answer is b.
As I see them, both B and C have misused the colon.
The error is in D.
B and C would be better with semicolons, but the colon works in both, too, because the second sentence explains the first.
I think there should be capital letters after the colons in B and C.
