What if anytthing, is wrong with the following sentence?

1. Arriving at the circus early, seats could be selected near the center ring.
a. properly consturcted sentence
b.comma splice
c. dangler
d. lacks parallel parts

When you construct a bulleted list, you should:

a. begin with an-ing word.
b.begin with a command verb.
c. make the items parallel in form.
d. mix bullet types to attract attention to curcial points.
1. dangler
2. make the items parallel in form
It's not d and it's not b and it's not a.
That only leaves you with a dangler.
Why?
Well, you know it's not a so lets not bother.
You know it's not d.
Your not sure if it's a comma splice or dangler right?
So what is the rule for a comma splice. The rule is that both parts of the sentence must be independent clauses. Are both parts of the sentence independent of each other? Do they have a coordinate conjunction.
First, they are not independent of each other. So that must mean that it's a dangler.

Often the case but not necessarily, for example:

A first aid kit for the home should include:

· Two triangular arm bandages
· Five small sterile bandages
· Two large sterile banages
· A selection of Plasters
· Alcohol-free antiseptic wipes
· Blunt-ended scissors
· Sterile eye wash
· Sterile eye patch
When you construct a bulleted list, you should: begin with an-ing word.
Not necessarily, it depends what the list is about and how the 'lead in' to the list is phrased. Bullet points are a good way to make lists of all types very clear and easy to understand. For example

I like bullet points because:

  • they are easier to read than a list that runs along the page

  • they can be an attractive design feature

  • they increase the 'white space' on a page to improve the overall look

  • they force you to think logically about the list's contents
