All of his coworkers would be there to celebrate the companys 10th anniversary. RATIONALE Remember that apostrophes are used to indicate possession or form contractions. "Bill's" and "company's" both need apostrophes to demonstrate possession of the company and the anniversary, respectively. Conversely, "coworkers" and "employees" are simply plural nouns and not possessive in this instance, meaning no apostrophe is needed. The correct answer is "Bill's company was hosting a picnic in the park for employees and their families. All of his coworkers would be there to celebrate the company's 10th anniversary."

The odds of winning the lottery were slim to none, but somehow I won. RATIONALE Exclamation points should be used to indicate strong emotion in writing.

When a coordinating conjunction is used to separate two separate two contrasting clauses, a comma should be appear before the coordinating conjunction. Therefore, the correct sentence is I have never been so excited in all of my life! The odds of winning the lottery were slim to none, but somehow I won.
