    As a person who has had to learn how to stop using run-on sentences I will see if I can recognize any here. I may not be correct though, so I would check my stuff. I will just see what I can do for you. Just read them out loud and if they sound off, they may be a run-on. I am not a 100% sure, but 1. I believe would be c since it is not divided by a comma and if you read it to me it doesn't sound right. 2. once again I believe it is b. Since it states that it climbed up the tree, which could've easily been another sentence I believe it's a run-on. 3. I think it would be C because if you just read it out it is the only one that sounds like it fits. 4. I believe is B. 5. C, I believe 6. I would say, "yet" 7. I would go with "so" 8. I would go with "or" 9. C, I believe 10. I would say A Once again, I would check my answers. Don't take them as law XD. I hope this helps though, if you have any questions let me know.

    Like DanJS said, try reading them out loud. That might help!
