  3. Yes, I am guessing a)according to the comma rule 1:
    Use a comma to separate the elements in a series (three or more things).

    English is my 2nd language so I read and guess my best according to the rules,still I'm never too sure.

    am I right?

  4. Yes, "a" is correct. Be sure to read both little articles I've linked above. They are short and give the reasons for all the commas in your choice.

  5. PS -- Since you are choosing your answers based on the rules (in this case, comma rules), then you're really not guessing! You believe you are correct, and you are posting to double-check. But you're not guessing!
