Ignore errors of punctuation, if any ? The (A) President and the (B) Speaker of the House found the (C) Congressional Republicans’ filibusters to be (D) all together specious
Read the sentence to determine if there is any grammatical error in it. Choose the letter corresponding to the part that contains the error. Ignore the errors of punctuation, if any ? The
A. President and the
B. Speaker of the House found the
C. Congressional Republicans’ filibusters to be
D. all together specious
Answer : D. all together specious
- This is incorrectly spelled as two words. In this sentence, it should be "altogether," a one-word adverb modifying the adjective "specious" and meaning "entirely" or "completely".
- "All together" would be used for a different meaning. e.g. "The family members were all together at the reunion".
- The President (A), Speaker of the House (B), and Republicans’ (C) are all correctly capitalized as they are titles. The adjective congressional (C) refers to Congress (a proper name and thus capitalized), but as an adjective it is lower-case unless part of a proper name.
