Libby owned four fish; he was bright orange. What is incorrect in the previous sentence? "He" should be a proper name. "He was" should be "it was." "He was" should be "they were." It should be split into two sentences.

Well four fish is plural, so you need a plural pronoun.

The plural pronoun in this case would be they, so the answer should be "He was" to "They were".

I like this comic as a quick and comedic way to remember how to use the semicolon: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/semicolon

"four fish" is plural, but then you jump to just one fish who is orange. It makes no since. So instead of "He was" it needs to be "They were" Now the sentence it "Libby owned four fish; they were bright orange." That makes much more since that the sentence you were given. Hope this helps~! Good luck!
