Unformatted text preview: 2. Choose one of the three common sentence faults and explain what it is. (p. 149) Fragments occur when a phrase or dependent clause is punctuated as if it were a sentence. Run-ons occur when two or more independent clauses are placed in the same sentence without being properly joined with punctuation or a coordinating conjunction. Comma splices occur when independent clauses are joined by only a comma. 3. Guffey mentions three plans for developing paragraphs: direct, pivoting, and indirect. If your purpose is to compare and contrast two possible plans to follow, which development plan should you probably choose? Why? (p. 153) A pivoting paragraph starts with sentences about contrasting ideas before the topic sentence and supporting sentences follow, so that plan best supports comparing and contrasting.
