Could you define what you mean by dangler, comma splice, run on, lacks parallel parts and so on so that everybody has the same idea of what these definitions mean.
1. comma splice
2. misplaced part ("with the red boots on" appears to modify "car")
3. lacks parallel parts
4. properly constructed sentence
5. lacks parallel parts
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
aer these the right answere
can you explain how 3. lacks parallel parts is corrects for that sentence?
Do you advise me to go to college or that I should get a job after high school?

should be:

Do you advise me to go to college or to get a job after high school?

or:

Do you think that I should go to college or that I should get a job after high school?

The two "corrections" shown are both more parallel in structure than the original.
