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.
The elderly patient's deep venous thrombosis was treated with Coumadin.

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

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.
