True or False
Is the following sentence properly functuated.

The young appearing patient went to the doctor's office.

Answer is FALSE
My question is WHY? - Is it BAD sentence structure - we have ruled out that the apostrope is CORRECT.

Should there be a comma after patient?
or the intire sentence should be re-written.

Thanks again,
Leslie

  • Grammar -

    "young appearing" is a very awkward phrasing. If it MUST be used, then there should be a hyphen there.

    (With or without a hyphen, I still don't like it!)
