    A is incorrect. Do you understand how semi-colons are used?

    A RUN-ON SENTENCE (sometimes called a "fused sentence") has at least two parts, either one of which can stand by itself (in other words, two independent clauses), but the two parts have been smooshed together instead of being properly connected via http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/runons.htm

    Sorry, OpenStudy seemed to crash on me, but I honestly feel it could be either C or D. How about you?

    Definitely D @logan13 because there are no commas or semi-colons. It's a bunch of add-ons, like "and & or"
