  • English -

    No, not C. It has an unneeded comma in it.

  • English -

    Thank you! Hmmm....I really thought the comma was needed.....I guess I was wrong!! Thank you....:)

  • English -

    If the dependent clause comes before the main clause, you need a comma to separate the two. See sentence B -- where should the comma go in that sentence?

    If the dependent clause comes AFTER the main clause, no comma is needed. See A and C.
