  3. Read about comma use #2 on that webpage I linked above, and then re-think your answer for your question 2. In other words, read about commas in compound sentences.

    And for question 5, either B or D would be correct if they are identical.

  4. Sorry, my mistake,I went back to double check on Question #5 and D is not the same as question B. But I'm still thinking the answer is B now looking at because D haves (Baileys's) and B have (Bailey's) that's the difference between the two.

  6. For #2 I figured it couldn't be B because the punctuations don't seem wrong,and D is supposably incorrect, so that leave A and C but I think its A because I think it should be (We went to the store, but we forgot to buy eggs.) Am I wrong :'(
