Which of the following groups of words is a sentence fragment?
A. when we stopped by the garden.
B. Stop by the garden.
C. We stopped; she didn't.
D. stopping by the garden, we saw that the flowers were in bloom


A sentence fragment doesn't express a complete thought. Let's look at your examples.

A. This leaves us hanging. It doesn't tell what happened "when we stopped by the garden."
B. This is an imperative sentence, commanding or inviting us to stop by the garden.
C. Although short, it expresses a complete thought. It has a subject and verb -- with no qualifying words (like WHEN, SINCE, IF, etc.).
D. This is a complete sentence.


The Answer is A. When we stopped by the garden.
