Although the abscess was incised and drained in the emergency room and cultures were obtained, which grew coag-positive staphylococcus.
A This is a run-on that needs a semicolon after time.
B This is a run-on that needs to be split into two separate sentences.
C This is a fragment that can be fixed by adding a comma after incised.
D This is a fragment that can be fixed by removing the word although.
E The sentence is fine as it is.

My Answer is B.Otherwise the sentence seems to long and wordy to me. Am I right?

    Believe it or not, this is a sentence fragment. There are two dependent clauses -- the first begins with "although," and the second begins with "which." The sentence does not have an independent clause.

    B. is not the right answer.

    okay thank you! So I am going to say that D would be the right answer.
