Homework Help: Grammar-Writeacher

Posted by Leslie on Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 2:26pm.

Thank You Writeacher and others at Jiskha - you are Awesome -

I got 96% on my Exam - should really have been 98-100% but that is computers and not being able to take it up with a Teacher.

Wrong ones:
Identify the simple subject and simple predicate.
Question:
The elderly patient's deep venous thrombosis was treated with Coumadin.

Answer:
simple subject = I put as we discussed and according to Google there are more than one thrombosis ex.(deep vein thrombosis) venous thrombosis - they only wanted:
simple subject = thrombosis
simple predicate = was treated(correct)

Wrong One: Puctuation

Correct the punctuation by inserting periods, commas, and apostrophes where and if appropriate.
Question:
The serial 7's revealed in my opinion evidence of abnormalities.

Answer:
The serial 7's revealed in my opinion, evidence of abnormalities.

I took out the apostrophe after 7 - because according to my module:
"If you use capital letters or numbers , you do not need to use apostrophes.
I GOOGLED - got Oxford Dictionaries-
"you can use an apostrophe to show the plurals of single numbers.
ex. Find all the number 7's.
I suppose it is a preference not a rule?

Thank you again - I really appreciate all your help and expertise.

I just might need you again on my next module.
Bye for now - going to take a break and enjoy the Beautiful Okanagan.
