Question:

Which of these options is most effective way to write this sentence? A. The contest was judged by the town council. B. The town council judged the contest.

Terri T.
Answer:

Avoid using the passive voice in your writing. Be sure that the subject does the action in the sentence. When writing in the passive voice, you have to use more prepositional phrases that make your writing weaker.

Question:

After the audition the director said that the actor performed bad. Which of the following is the best way to rewrite this sentence? A. After the audition, the director said that the actor had performed bad. B. After the audition the director said that the actor had performed badly. C. After the audition, the director said that the actor had performed badly. D. No Change.

Answer:

As is often the case, this question tests the student on two different concepts, the first punctuation and the second the use of adjectives and adverbs. Choice C is the correct choice because the comma is placed correctly after the introductory dependent clause, and the adverb "badly" is correctly used to modify the verb "performed" rather than the adjective, "bad."
