Hi,

did i get these answers right---

1b Yes

2c Yes

3d This has two parts: An appeals court ordered the money returned and however, the IRS didn't comply. There is no comma after returned, so it seems a little misleading to call it a comma splice. I'd prefer to call it a run-on sentence.

4a Yes.

Best wishes, Clive
