I answered C

  • Grammar and punctuation -

    No, sorry ... C is incorrect. Be sure to read over the colon and semicolon links I sent you.

  • Grammar and punctuation -

    I did look in there but as I did and looked over all my options they all have a colon of some sort and the only two that made sense were C or A. So for my study guide I would answer A

  • Grammar and punctuation -

    Yes, A is correct. Since "dying young" is not a complete sentence in itself, no capital D is needed.

  • Grammar and punctuation -

    Scuba was coined as an acronym. That stands for self-contained underwater breathing apparatus.
