I need help with the following grammar exercise.

Rewrite the following sentences, focusing on the grammar area specified above the sentence. If the sentence is already correct, write No Change.

Punctuating Sentences
The goose bit the mailman on the leg.

Punctuating Sentences
With five gallons of gas.

Punctuating Sentences
Because the store was closed.

Punctuating Sentences
For the seventh time.

Punctuating Sentences
The rainbow stretched across the sky from the ice cream truck to the house down the lane.

Punctuating Sentences
Between the sixth and seventh floors of the building in the stairwell over in the corner.

Punctuating Sentences
Since I started taking college classes.

Punctuating Sentences
She drove the car right into the garage.

Punctuating Sentences
When the garage door was closed.

Punctuating Sentences
Friday nights at the diner were always busy, I prefer the activity.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. It would be much easier to correct these if you had given the "sentences" numbers. The main problem here is that many of them are NOT sentences but partians.

#1, fine
#2, 3, 4, are NOT complete sentences (no main verb.)
#5, fine
#6, 7, incomplete sentences.
#8, 9 = incomplete sentences
#10 = not a comma but a semicolon (; = ;) to avoid a run-on sentence.
