First of all, you need to write all sentences with proper capitalization and end punctuation, too.
Scroll down and read #5 carefully. Then re-think your answers.
I'll wait for you.
okay i know these rules but i am confused when using them especially #5 ... okay let me try again
sentences tha need commas are f - d- b- e-c
oh yea the punctuations and capitalization is no problem for me ...
Notice the difference between these two sentences in the link above:
"He is a tall and distinguished fellow" -- so therefore, you can write, "He is a tall, distinguished fellow."
But... "I live in a little and purple house," which is an AWFUL sentence! Therefore, you must write, "I live in a little purple house."
If something is still questionable, try switching the word order. Would you say or write, "I live in a purple little house"? No, so therefore "little purple" in that order and without a comma is what you need to use.
Which of these make good, smooth sense:
b) the fish was served with a rich and tangy sauce
c) my first job was happy and rewarding experience
d) Mr.Hawkins has a large collection of rare and valuable coins
e) the leader of the rock group was a friendly and attractive youth
f) A well-planned and thoughtful speech followed the introduction.
g) for christmas i bought father a pair of soft and pigskin gloves
h) the vessel slipped into port on a rainy and moonless night.
For all those in which the word "and" sounds OK, use a comma. For all those in which the word "and" sounds AWFUL, don't use a comma.
You're right about a) -- it's OK as it is.
b and e don't need commas ... am i right untill now..
Of your original sentences, I think these do not need commas:
a and g
I think all the rest need commas.
this is really confusing ... thanks alot for everything, though .. :D
You're right -- it's not easy. But just keep those questions in mind:
Can I switch them around?
Can I use "and" between them?
If yes, use a comma. If no, don't use a comma.
