These changes were not to be taken lightly, they shifted the war's course of history entirely. A. No change B. Replace , with . C. Replace "they" with "it" D. Replace "they" with "them"

Answer:

Having two complete sentences next to each other is called a run-on. This is grammatically incorrect. We need to separate these complete sentences with either a period or a semicolon. C presents the same problem as A. D is grammatically incorrect and doesn't make sense.

Question:

Explain the difference between a colon and a semicolon.

Answer:

A colon looks like a period on top of another period. The part before the colon has to be a complete sentence and the part after the colon explains the first part somehow, such as with lists, quotations, or explanations. A semicolon is a comma on top of a period. Use a semicolon with complete sentences on both sides of the semicolon and the two ideas are related to each other.

Question:

Black bears are omnivores, with _their_ diets depending on the season and where they are located. A. No change B. they're C. its D. it's

Answer:

The answer is A. The subject is "bears", which is plural, so we need the plural possessive pronoun "their" since the diets belong to the bears. "They're" is a contraction and is the same thing as "they are". This doesn't make sense in the sentence. "Its" without an apostrophe is the possessive pronoun for singular subjects (ex: bear, car, child). "It's" with an apostrophe is also a contraction and is the same thing as "it is", which doesn't make sense for this sentence.
