  1. Hi Melany!

    I got every answer correct except number 5. When I read the sentence, the comma was a natural place for me to pause. So, having a comma before the connective seemed fitting. But I think I caught my mistake. Am I correct that a comma would be needed if the sentence was worded like this: “…and WE hoped the kids would be entertained with their movies”?

    Thank you!

    1. Melanie, I’m so sorry for spelling your name wrong!

      Exactly, Rose, we done! Have to have that subject “we” to require the comma. Yes, commas indicate a pause, and sometimes we break even the comma rules for additional clarity. But you followed the pattern and corrected the error!
      Thanks for stopping by!
