    Identify the opening sentence that is the clearest example of an angry tone. I was not about to let the villainous attendant who bilked us out of our money get away with it. The young child would have been upset if her sister had not given her the candy. The puppy barked violently but then suddenly ran off with its tail between its legs. After taking a sip of the drink, he impetuously spit it out.

    Identify the incorrectly punctuated sentence. Rehearsing for the performance, Alison lost track of the time. Learning her lines had been challenging. Realizing that it was getting late, she called home from the lobby. Performing in front of an audience, does not make her nervous. --- No problem. :)
