Sentence Fragment Practice

A complete sentence must contain a subject and a verb. Sentence fragments are missing a subject or a verb or both or do not express a complete thought. In other words, a sentence fragment cannot stand by itself. To spot sentence fragments, read the entire sentence. The sentence will usually just sound plain wrong, and you will realize it is missing a subject or a verb.

  • Incorrect: The student running to get to class on time. (missing a verb – what did the student do?) 
  • Correct: The student running to get to class on time dropped her water bottle.
  • Incorrect: Is excited to go to the beach and surf. (missing a subject – who is going to the beach?) 
  • Correct: My little brother Shaun is excited to go to the beach and surf.
