punctuating sentences, adding subject/and or verb. I do not get it, I am lost with this assignment. I need help.

1. With five gallons of gas.
2. Because the store was closed.
3. For the seventh time.

None of these three is a complete sentence. You need to add words to complete each one. Here are some examples:

Fragment: After the movie
Fixed: We went for hamburgers after the movie.

Fragment: While we were dancing
Fixed: While we were dancing, there was a fireworks show going on.

So now ... how will you fix those three fragments? Please re-post with your responses, and we will give you feedback.

=)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

1. With five gallons of gas.
It took five gallons of gas to fill the tank.

2. Because the store was closed.
I could not buy milk, because the store was closed.

3. For the seventh time.
We have mailed the letter for the seventh time.

Almost!!

Numbers 2 and 3 are perfect. Number 1 is fine if your teacher doesn't mind your rephrasing of the original, but if you need to keep these three exactly the same, be sure to make a sentence for number 1 with the whole phrase "with five gallons of gas" in it somewhere. (In other words, don't forget the word "with.")

What do you think?

=)

sounds good, i will correct it.

how about,

With five gallons of gas, the car ran perfectly.

Perfect!!

You've got it.

=)
