Fragments and Run-ons Answers











  1. Ms. Sue

    All the answers are right except for 9.

  2. Adele

    i thought # 4 was also wrong because it cant be a sentence unless the "i" becomes capital. now thart u've realized this it is # 4 still a sentence?

  3. Anonymous

    9. Fragment

  4. Adele

    Also what is the answer for # 9? (Im checking my work)

  5. Reed

    9 & 10 are wrong. 9 is a fragment. 10 is a compound sentence. It would be better with a semi-colon instead of a comma, but is acceptable this way. It could also be two sentences.

  6. Adele

    thanks ANONYMOUS! :D

  7. Reed

    Well, what is a run-on? I guess we can disagree. This one looks like a compound sentence to me. With the comma, it looks run-on. With the semi-colon, it would not.

  8. Ms. Sue

    Reed is right. 10 is a run-on.

    I overlooked that. Sorry.

  9. Reed

    No, Ms. Sue, you identified it as a run-on. I said compound. The comma and semi-colon debate does make a difference, though. Many people think the comma is enough in a compound sentence. I think the semi makes a difference. But we are splitting hairs, methinks. I concede it's run-on. :)

  10. Lukas

    for number 5 i thought it was a sentence for some reason then i realized it was a fragment because the sentence should've changed when we.
