Hi Teachers,
I have this exercise in a text book. My question is: Shouldn't it have a period at the end of the options? Because the book doesnt have them. Am I wrong? If yes, could you tell me why there is no period if they are asking to complete a sentence?

Circle the letter that best completes the sentences.
1. A location is
a. a town
b. a city
c. a place
2. City dwellers are people who
a. live in a city
b. work in a city
c. are always at home
Thanks in advance

Hi,
There is no need for periods at the end of each option because these options are not sentences.
A sentence ends with a period; a fragment doesn't.
According to you, these options are given by reason of completing the sentence fragments—thus the absence of
periods.

How about these ones? The answers start with a capital letter and there's only a period in the last one. Are they also fragments?

Where does Martin live?

a.

In a small town

b.

In a museum





2.-

Does Martin like where he lives?

a.

Yes

b.

No

c.

I don’t know.
