Lesson 366

Mechanics - Punctuation - Commas

 

Use a comma before the coordinate conjunctions that join independent clauses in a compound sentence. (Very short clauses joined by and may omit the comma.) Examples: Harry will leave on the next flight, but you will join him in a week. You wash and I will dry.

 

Instructions: Place commas where they are needed.

 

1. She walked and he ran.

 

2. I went to New York by train but I returned by plane.

 

3. I neither like you nor will I assist you in your request.

 

4. He will have to help or the project will not be completed.

 

5. The boss will be here tomorrow and we will ask for a raise.
