I had to correct the following fragment sentence error. Please advice if they are correct. Thank you in advance for your help.
1. It is true that the first drive-in theaters opened in New Jersey in 1933, which was in the middle of the Great Depression when money was scarce.
2. It is true that by 1958 there were over 4,000 drive-ins the United States as recorded by the United Drive-in Theatre Owners Association.
3. It is true that the number of drive-ins have fallen drastically perhaps because escalating land prices make property to valuable for use in this way or the fact that they are open only during the summer months in some areas.
4. It is true that there are only 430 drive-ins left in the country, including the American territories.
5. It is true that other outdoors summer activities are also endangered for instance the miniature golf industry down from 50,000 courses in the 1930s to fewer than 15,000 today.

    I don't know why each sentence begins with "It is true that."

    Sentences 1 and 4 are correct.

  • english -

    I had to correct each sentence using "It is true that" test, identify the fragment and complete sentences.

    Hope this is helpful

    So with that said is 5 incorrect.

    Thank you again for your help.

    Sentence 5 is a run-on sentence.

    5. It is true that other outdoors summer activities are also endangered, for instance the miniature golf industry down from 50,000 courses in the 1930s to fewer than 15,000 today.

    1. The first drive-in theaters opened in New Jersey in 1933, in the middle of the Great Depression when money was scarce.

    2. By 1958 there were over 4,000 drive-ins the United States, as recorded by the United Drive-in Theatre Owners Association.

    3. The number of drive-ins has fallen drastically perhaps because escalating land prices make property too valuable for use in this way / or the fact that they are open only during the summer months in some areas. WAAAAYYYY TOO LONG FOR ONE SENTENCE. DIVIDE AT THE / AND REVISE.

    4. there are only 430 drive-ins left in the country, including the American territories. OK

    5. Other outdoor summer activities are also endangered / for instance the miniature golf industry down from 50,000 courses in the 1930s to fewer than 15,000 today. RUN-ON; DIVIDE AT THE / AND REVISE.
