let me tell you a little bit about the comma splice.
basically, a comma splice is when two independent clauses are joined by a comma. independent clauses are sentences able to stand on their own, as opposed to a dependent clause which cannot. (examples, respectively: I will walk the dog. / Unless you want to.)
is there an answer choice above that features two sentences able to stand by themselves linked together with a comma?

"Peregrine falcons are great fliers, and they help keep the pigeon population down in some cities."
let's break that apart:
Peregrine falcons are great fliers. <-- definitely a complete sentence.
And they help keep the pigeon population down in some cities. <-- can this stand alone with the "and" beginning the sentence?
notice without that "and", the sentence does become complete. in choice B that would mean there are two independent clauses separated by a comma, and we know that goes against the rules of grammar. so, which choice would it have to be?
I kinda get it now
grammar is confusing. especially english grammar. hopefully as you go through your lesson, it will start to make more sense -- it usually does the more you practice.
