Question:

How do you fix a sentence fragment?

Inactive
Tyson D.
Answer:

First you need to understand: A sentence fragment is a group of words that is punctuated as a sentence but is not grammatically correct.Here is the process to fix them. 1. A sentence fragment may lack a subject, a verb, or an independent clause. For example:The wind velocity in hurricanes and monsoons. The winds raging in hurricanes and monsoons. 2a. Locate the subject. 2b. Locate the verb. Inspires many poets and song writers. (This lacks a subject.) The pleasant weather of May. (This lacks a verb.) 3. Look for Subordinate Conjunctions A clause that begins with a subordinator (or dependent word) is a dependent clause. These examples are not independent clauses. If a tornado sweeps across the plains.-- this is a Fragments Because snow is beautiful in the moonlight. -- this is a Fragments 4. Combine the fragment with the sentence that precedes it or with the sentence that follows it. For example: Dramatic weather conditions do not always cause disasters. But at times create beautiful situations as well. Correction: Dramatic weather conditions do not always cause disasters but at times create beautiful situations. SO now here is a quick reference to help you fix them: Questions to ask which will help you identify sentence fragments in your writing… 1. IS THERE A VERB? 2. IS THERE A SUBJECT? A SUBJECT SHOULD TELL READER ANSWER TO WHO? A SUBJECT SHOULD TELL READER ANSWER TO WHAT? BEWARE THE IMPLIED SUBJECT!! {IMPERATIVES} 3. IS THERE A CONJUNCTION STARTING THE SENTENCE? WATCH for SUBORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS used in DEPENDANT CLAUSES.

Question:

Answer:

They first scene they represent the natural forces, as seen in the opening act when the storm Because of an association with Satan or evil they are linked to bad events like storms, as such are blamed for bad weather at times.. when the witches says good ("fair") will become evil ("foul"). This foreshadows Macbeth's change from a loyal Thane into a murderous tyrant. He was fair caring person and will become foul thinking fearful soul. The witches symbolize this shifting in the world from foul to fair at this time in the country political landscape perhaps. When they give Macbeth the prophecy in in act 4 - they tel him to be fearless as "no man of woman born" can ever harm him. Thus setting in motion actions that will lead to his vainglorious end. Add to that the next bit where they say - be brave and proud like a lion because he will never be defeated until Great Birnam Wood to Dunsinane Hill marches to fight against him. This fuels his untouchable feelings and sets him on a path that he thinks can do no wrong or if he does he won't be stopped. Yet when pressed by Macbeth they give him one more bit of news that at the end of all his efforts it is Banquo that will be King and no him. This should give him pause in his actions be it instead sets to task more passionately in that he want to change this fate?
