Question:

Who is famous for using the following questioning technique to show people that they think they know what they don't know? And what is this technique commonly called? "What is "x"?" "X is A." "And A is B, right?" "Yes." "So, If X is A and A is B, then X is B, right?" "Yes." "But X is clearly not B, right?" "Yes, clearly." "Therefore, either A is not B or X is not A, right?" "Yes, that seems logical." "But A is certainly B, right?" "Certainly." "Therefore, X must not be A, right?" "I must admit that."

Question:

What grammatical error occurs in this following two sentences, and why? Mary and Susie walked to the grocery store last night. Taking their jackets and boots with them.

Answer:

The period between "night" and "Taking" should be replaced with a comma. And "Taking" should be lowercased. The clause "Taking their jackets and boots with them." is not an independent clause and therefore cannot be a complete, independent sentence. It should be combined with the previous sentence using a comma because it supplements information conveyed by the previous sentence.
