The directions for Sentence Correction questions look like this:
Each of the sentence correction questions presents a sentence, part or all of which is underlined. Beneath the sentence you will find five ways of phrasing the underlined part. The first of these repeats the original; the other four are different. Follow the requirements of standard written English to choose an answer, paying attention to grammar, word choice, and sentence construction. Select the answer that produces the most effective sentence; your answer should make the sentence clear, exact, and free of grammatical error. It should also minimize awkwardness, ambiguity, and redundancy.
1. When Charlene goes to the park, she likes to run, swim, and to play basketball.
A. she likes to run, swim, and to play basketball
B. she likes to run, swim, and play basketball
C. she likes running, to swim, and to play basketball
D. she likes running, swimming, and to play basketball
E. she likes all of the following, to run, swim, and to play basketball
Your task is to find the answer choice that is most grammatically correct, but sometimes more than one answer choice will appear to be free of grammatical errors. This is by design — style conventions must also be taken into consideration in determining the correct answer. You must find the one answer that is grammatically correct, clearly expressed and concise.
