Example Question #1 : Produce Simple, Compound, And Complex Sentences: Ccss.Ela Literacy.L.3.1.I

Select the answer that best combines the two sentences below.

The girl is young. The girl quickly ran around the track.

Possible Answers:

The girl is young and the girl ran quickly.

The quick girl ran around the young track. 

The girl ran. 

The young girl quickly ran around the track. 

Correct answer:

The young girl quickly ran around the track. 

Explanation:

When we combine two sentences we want to include all of the details, but we don't need to repeat anything. Both sentences start with "The girl" which only needs to be in our sentence once. Also, the adjectives and adverbs need to match the correct nouns and verbs. "Young" is describing "girl" and "quickly" is describing "ran". 

The correct answer is, "The young girl quickly ran around the track. "
