Would you please check if I answered these correctly?

a. I just bought CDs by Regina Spektor, John Legend, and Prince.

b. I just bought: CDs by Regina Spektor, John Legend, and Prince.

I picked B because d suffices fine for this.

a. Students, who study hard, should do well on the test.

b. Students who study hard should do well on the test.

I picked B because it didn't need any correction

a. Alex realized the outfielder had dropped the ball.

b. After sliding into second base, Alex realized the outfielder had dropped the ball.

I picked B because the after makes a better sentence.

a. Bob enjoys playing football, and Jim enjoys playing hockey.

b. Bob enjoys playing football and Jim enjoys playing hockey.

I picked B because they are saying pretty much the same thing.

  2. <<a. I just bought CDs by Regina Spektor, John Legend, and Prince.

    b. I just bought: CDs by Regina Spektor, John Legend, and Prince.

    I picked B because d suffices fine for this.>>

    I'm not sure what "d" says. "A" is the correct answer here. If the colon had appeared after the word "by," it would be appropriate.

    <<a. Students, who study hard, should do well on the test.

    b. Students who study hard should do well on the test.

    I picked B because it didn't need any correction>>

    Right. Letter "a" is wrong.

    <<a. Alex realized the outfielder had dropped the ball.

    b. After sliding into second base, Alex realized the outfielder had dropped the ball.

    I picked B because the after makes a better sentence.>>

    Both are fine from a grammar standpoint (unless I am missing something).

    <<a. Bob enjoys playing football, and Jim enjoys playing hockey.

    b. Bob enjoys playing football and Jim enjoys playing hockey.

    I picked B because they are saying pretty much the same thing. >>

    The comma is wrong in letter "a." It should not be there. Better "b" is the correct answer.
