Answer 1
Answer:

Punctuation is a grammatical tool that is used to organize thoughts. In the last sentence, her favorite vegetables are corn, beans, peas, and asparagus uses an unnecessary comma.

What is a comma?

The comma is a punctuation mark used in sentences to separate the ideas and thoughts in the sentence itself. It gives the idea of a short pause in a sentence and is also used to separate list items.

The last sentence uses an 'oxford comma' that is used to separate the list items and is used before the 'and' of the last item. It is an optional comma that is not compulsory to use.

Therefore, option D. Her favorite vegetables are corn, beans, peas, and asparagus use an unnecessary comma.

Answer 2
Answer:

Answer:

D. Her favorite vegetables are corn, beans, peas, and asparagus.​

Explanation:

Sentence D contains an 'Oxford comma'; it is a comma used after the penultimate item in a list of three or more items, before the conjunction ‘and’.

Not all writers and publishers use the 'Oxford comma' because it is an optional comma. For instance, sentence C has a list of three items, yet it does not use a comma before 'and'.

"Thus absolutely lost in thought, and dying with the very thoughts of drowning, I come up with the post, who I did not see 'til very deliberately a few paces, when we entered a thicket of trees and shrubs, and I perceived by the horse's going, we were on the decent of a hill, which, as we come nearer the bottom, 'twas totally dark with the trees that surrounded it. But I knew by the going of the horse we had entered the water, which my guide told me was the hazardous river he had told me of; and he, riding up close to my side, bid me not fear-we should be over immediately. I now rallied all my courage, knowing that I must either venture my fate of drowning, or be left like the children in the wood. So, as the post bid me, I gave reins to my nag; and sitting as steady as just before in the canoe, in a few minutes got safe to the other side, which he told me was the Narragansett country."
