Question:

What does the green light in The Great Gatsby represent?

Inactive
Lana M.
Answer:

It represents Gatsby's unwavering love for Daisy and his dream that she will one day find her way back to him. The green light flashes at the end of Daisy's dock, across from Gatsby's home—a home that is extravagant and grand. The color green alludes to the importance of money and luxury that Daisy needs and that Gatsby worked to attain in the hopes that Daisy would come back to him.

Question:

How do I know if a comma is needed before a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or, nor, for, so, yet)?

Inactive
Lana M.
Answer:

A comma is needed before a coordinating conjunction IF that coordinating conjunction is separating two independent clauses. An independent clause is a group of words that could stand alone and form a complete thought. If the first part of the sentence (the group of words that come BEFORE the coordinating conjunction) OR the second part of the sentence (the group of words that come AFTER the coordinating conjunction) is not an independent clause, then there is no need for a comma before the coordinating conjunction.
