    the missing punctuation is a comma. It should look like this:

  • The missing piece of punctuation is a comma between seeds and nuts because these are different pieces of food which the hamster is eating.Seeds and nuts are also two different things.

  • Archie the hamster eats seeds, nuts and dried peas.

    You need a comma between seeds and nuts because if it’s a list you need commas to
    Indicate a new item of the list.

    A example of a list is:
    On my shopping list today I need: Broccoli,
    Cabbage, Carrots and Bacon

  • Archie the hamster eats seeds, nuts and dried peas every day.

    You need a comma because it is a list and you need to pause in between words.

  • Hi Mr Mallison,
    The missing punctuation is a comma and the comma should go between seeds and nuts because they are both different foods. Also it is a list and in a list you need commas between so you can take a quick breath. The correct sentence should look like this:

    Archie the hamster eats seeds, nuts and dried peas every day.

  • The comma needs to be here like this : Archie the hamster eats seeds , nuts and dried peas every day. We use commas here because you need to list things using commas .

  • This is your sentence;
    Archie the hamster eats seeds nuts and dried peas every day.
    This is what the should be like;
    Archie (the hamster) eats seeds, nuts and dried peas every day.
    I think there should be brackets because it is giving extra information and I think there should be commas because it is in a list.

  • The missing punctuation a comma it should look like this: Archie the hamster eats seeds,nuts and dried pees every day.πŸΉπŸŒ°πŸ˜€

  • This is how it should actually look like this;Archie the hamster eats seeds,nuts and dried peas every day.

    You need a comma because it’s a list.

  • the sentence should have a comma like this
    Archie the hamster eats seeds,nuts and dried peas every day
    I think there should be commas because there is a list of food πŸ™‚

  • Thank you to all the children that have had a go at this task; the answers:

    Archie the hamster eats seeds, nuts and dried peas every day.

    A comma is needed after seeds because it is a list of items.
