Notice that many of the sentences have incorrect punctuation. Rewrite the sentences that are incorrectly punctuated. If a sentence is correct, simply write “correct” by the number. 1 When asked to name the most important of the five senses; most people would probably say sight. 2 Perhaps some—especially musicians or radio disc jockeys—would pick sound but I'm convinced that the sense of smell is at least the equal of those two. 3 Smells often serve as a sign that something pleasant is about to happen; or the first warning that danger is at hand. 4 That buttery smell of perfectly popped popcorn makes your mouth water; that harsh, burning smell warns you that you're going to need to pop another bag. 5 And think about times when you have walked across a lawn with lush, freshly cut grass.
