around we don't actually need one this time Thie underlying
portion of the sentence after paris is part of a
compound predicated the verbs that show the action of the
subject and that the predators the subject people has both
gathered and greeted for the predicated way Join the two
words together with the conjunction and and no further action
need be taken so it's sea and placing a common
between the two predicates is well just wrong like we
said Similarly placing a semicolon b is incorrect because and
greeted charles lindbergh cannot stand on its on with cheese
Taking out conjunction d well creates chaos with the meaning
of the sentence and makes it more difficult to understand
