Determine if the following sentences employ the correct use of commas and apostrophes. True=correct False=wrong

1. The child was alert upon awakening, nonetheless we felt a full workup was best at this time.
Answer:
True
Looks good to me - flows nice.

  • Grammar - ,

    False -- it's a run-on.

  • Grammar - ,

    As a run-on sentence -
    There could or should be a period after awakening
    so the question is False ( not correct use of commas because you can't just put them in a sentence
    The sentence has to have a subject and a predicate.

  • Grammar - ,

    Yes, it's false. Basically, it's incorrect to separate sentences (independent clauses) with only a comma.

    Take a look (subjects are underlined; verbs are bold):

    The child was alert upon awakening,

    nonetheless we felt a full workup was best at this time.

    The word "nonetheless" is the same type of words as "however" or "then" -- a conjunctive adverb. It ISN'T a conjunction!!

    So ... how would you fix that error?
