Which of the following choices is a run-on sentence?
A. Take public transportation, it saves gas
B. Join the army and see the world
C. Why did the student body council vote to change the lunch time?
D. It's a story night; it's a perfect time to watch television
E. None of the above.
I think all of them are not run-onn sentences, so is it E?
Thank You in advance.

A. is a run-on sentence. It connects two independent clauses with a comma. It should be replaced by either a semicolon or a period.

Wait a second. But is "Take public transportation" an independent clause?
i don't think it is.

Yes. "Take public transportation" is an independent clause. Because it's an imperative sentence, the subject (You) is understood.
