    Since "in the summer months" modifies WHEN Lacey swims.

    It is definitely not D, since the comma is placed incorrectly. If you read D and C aloud with the pauses, it doesn't sound right at all. But, if you read A out loud, it sounds right. B just goes too quickly

    Therefore, the answer is A. Before dinner, we will play a board game. You usually add commas in sentences that state time in the beginning. Examples: After lunch, I will see Tiffany. During my walk, I saw a squirrel.

    I think it may be "B'. The other answer choices pause/don't pause in the wrong places! The best trick for this is to read each sentence aloud to see if they sound natural :)
