(Are both the same?)

(Is this sentence grammatical? Do we have to use 'comma' before 'and' or not?)

  • English -

    You have used the wrong verb -- "painted." Please check to see which word you really want.

    3 is correct. You don't need any commas in that sentence.

  • English -

    With a magic paintbrush, he painted food. (folktale)

  • English -

    Ohh. OK.

    Both of those sentences are correct, then.
