(Davis) That means that they use a comma instead of a period. In this example, the write have to use a period before students. The following sentence is another instance: I went to the pool, but it was closed, so I went in my car, then I turned the radio on, and then I went to the beach with my friends. This is a long sentence which need a period after closed instead of a comma, capitalize S, another period after on, delete and and capitalize T.
