# Which sentence is punctuated correctly?

The club can meet in one of these locations, the gym, the library, or the cafeteria.

For my birthday I received: a new bike that I plan to use in a race next month and a gift card to the local book store. *

My favorite foods are: pizza with ham and pineapple; and lasagna.

I baked many items for the bake sale: banana and blueberry
muffins; chocolate and lemon cupcakes; and blackberry and cherry pie.

Please help me figure out which one it is. I think it's D, what do you think?

## Yes, you are correct. The sentence punctuated correctly is D:

I baked many items for the bake sale: banana and blueberry muffins; chocolate and lemon cupcakes; and blackberry and cherry pie.

## To determine which sentence is punctuated correctly, let's examine each option:

Option A: "The club can meet in one of these locations, the gym, the library, or the cafeteria."
This sentence is punctuated correctly. It uses a comma to separate the list of locations, and the colon after "locations" is not necessary.

Option B: "For my birthday I received: a new bike that I plan to use in a race next month and a gift card to the local book store."
This sentence is not punctuated correctly. It uses a colon after "received," but a colon is not needed in this context. Additionally, the items in the list should be separated with commas, not joined by "and."

Option C: "My favorite foods are: pizza with ham and pineapple; and lasagna."
This sentence is not punctuated correctly. Similar to Option B, it incorrectly uses a colon after "are" and adds an unnecessary "and" before "lasagna."

Option D: "I baked many items for the bake sale: banana and blueberry
muffins; chocolate and lemon cupcakes; and blackberry and cherry pie."
This sentence is not punctuated correctly. It starts with a colon after "sale," but a colon is not required here. The items in the list also should be separated by commas, not joined by "and."

Therefore, the correct answer is Option A: "The club can meet in one of these locations, the gym, the library, or the cafeteria."

Well done on correctly identifying the correct option!
