When I was a child, I used to run, and play with my friends all day.

A) NO CHANGE
B) run, and, play
C) run and play,
D) run and play

[/vc_column_text][vc_text_separator title=”Day 3 Answer Explanation”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text](A), (B), and (C) all have unnecessary commas.  You should never put a comma between two verbs.  Run and play.

“When I was a child” is an introductory phrase and should have a comma after it.

“With my friends” is a prepositional phrase that modifies play.  You can cross out modifying phrases to simplify the sentence.

“all the time” is an adverbial phrase that modifies play as well.  You can also cross this out.

(D) is the correct sentence.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”Key Fact To Learn”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Never put a comma between two verbs.
