    I disagree with your answer for 3. The others are correct.

  • English -

    Check your text for number 4. Some grammarians would eliminate the comma between two such short clauses.

  • English -

    Thanks for the help! For 3, is it advice, for the state of advising?

    I think that 4 does not need the comma, but the wording of the question confused me for 5. 5 does not need any MORE commas, but it needs the commas it has :/ I think the question could have ben worded better...

  • English -

    4 is avarice.

    5 does not need any commas. It's a simple sentence with a compound predicate.

  • English -

    Number 1 was " out of control and natural"

    Number 2 was "sad and depressing"

    Number 3 was "avarice" not advice

    Number 4 with the long Jack rode his bike and nodded back cheerfully was "correct"

    Number 5 with the system alert was "incorrect"

    Make sure you pay attention to these answers or else you will fail. I got a 60% when I did this so I know that these are the right answers to get a 100%. Don't make the mistake I did.

  • English -

    Trust "U"
    He was 100% correct
