    Sorry I'm not that great at English, so I'll try my best. I'm guessing you are given a list of choices?

    Which sentence joins the clauses above correctly without changing their meaning? The blight infected most of the orange trees only a dozen, were spared. The blight infected most of the orange trees only; a dozen were spared. The blight infected most of the orange trees; only a dozen were spared. The blight, infected most of the orange trees, only a dozen were spared.

    so it's a matter of where to place the punctuation where does it seem most natural to do so? for me, `The blight infected most of the orange trees only a dozen, were spared.` is clunky because the pause comes after 'dozen' but it doesn't make sense to place a pause there
