1. Sentence fragment.

correction: That brand of car goes very fast; which is why many people want them.
Grammar quizzes can be tough. There is a lot to learn, and remember. I find that it gets easier with practice.
4.subject verb agreement
Can I call you back? I am trying to escape from the giant monster attacking the warehouse.
Are the answers above correct? Please help.
With one exception, you corrections are fine.
Your reasons for each one, however, are not correct -- not any of them.
2. You're right to change wants to want. However, it is not a run-on sentence. It's a complex sentence with an independent and a dependent clause.
3. I don't see any verb tense error. You're right to break this run-on into separate sentences.
4. Your correction is right, but it's a verb tense problem, not a subject-verb agreement problem.
In addition to what Ms. Sue has told you, there should NOT be a semicolon in #2. How will you fix that?
