The following sentence contains either a single error or no error at all. If the sentence contains an error, select the one underlined part that must be changed to make the sentence correct. If the sentence contains no error, select choice E.
|It weaves||across a strip of tropical land||where||the|
|Isthmus of Panama||narrows||in the shape of a|
|long flattened letter S, the Panama Canal|
|links the Atlantic and||Pacific Oceans.||No error|
Correct Answer: A
The error in this sentence occurs at (A), where a comma splice is created. To fix the comma splice, “It weaves” should be changed to “Weaving.”
