Complete the sentences with words that are punctuated and spelled correctly. Natasha was especially interested in (blank) however, Jorge wanted to check out the huge collection of precious gems. Natasha gazed into a replica of a cooking fire and began to imagine (blank) a crying baby, the persistent click of stone on stone involved in making scraping tools, and the thunderous cry of a mastodon.

    the first sentence it would be the second option because semi colons (;) are used to list things, then colons (:) are used to simply state something. therefore, the comma would be best used in the first sentence. The second sentence would be sounds; because the semi colon was making a list of things after the 'sounds'
