Sentences need to have periods at the ends of them, not commas.

## Good job! You correctly identified the issue with the sentences. The correct answer is both (b) run-on sentence and (a) comma splice.

A run-on sentence occurs when two or more independent clauses are joined together without proper punctuation or conjunctions. In the first sentence, the clauses "The first step to playing spades is to make sure you have all the cards in the deck" and "Take out the jokers, because in spades there are no wilds" are not properly separated.

A comma splice, on the other hand, is a specific type of run-on sentence where two independent clauses are joined together with only a comma. In the first sentence, the clauses "The first step to playing spades is to make sure you have all the cards in the deck" and "Take out the jokers, because in spades there are no wilds" are joined with a comma instead of a period or a conjunction.

To correct these errors, you can separate the clauses into individual sentences by using periods or by adding a coordinating conjunction (e.g., and, but, or) after the comma.
