The following passage contains three sentence fragments. On the lines below, rewrite each fragment so that it is a complete sentence.

Can video games be addictive? A recent study by Iowa State University concluded that 1 in 12 American children between the ages of 8 and 18 are addicted to video games. The same way that people are addicted to drugs or gambling. "Pathological gamers" spend more than 24 hours a week playing video games. Twice the amount of time spent by most players. Researchers are concerned that the United States may be following in the footsteps of South Korea. Which has more than one hundred clinics to treat video-game addiction. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no more than two hours a day of "screen time." This includes television, movies, and the Internet.
