Flashcard 11 - Punctuation Flashcard Set for the English Basics


The correct answer is:

The sentence needs commas (,) around the appositive phrase, a former gang member.


Commas set off appositives (words or phrases that provide additional information but which are not necessary to understanding the meaning of the sentence), so this sentence needs a comma before former and after member. “The artist, a former gang member, now sells his artwork to galleries for hundreds of dollars.”
