Decide where commas are needed in the following sentence:

Remy bought grapes plums and blueberries.

Remy bought grapes, plums, and blueberries. Because 'and' is connecting a series of words ('grapes', 'plums', 'blueberries'), we need commas to separate them.

Decide where a comma is needed in the following sentence:

Remy also bought bananas but not melon.

Remy also bought bananas, but not melon. Since 'but' is highlighting a contrast between what Remy did and did not buy, it requires a comma.

Decide if a comma is needed in the following sentence:

Juan loves Harry Potter yet he has not finished the series.

Juan loves Harry Potter, yet he has not finished the series. Because 'yet' is connecting two complete thoughts, it does require a comma.

Decide if a comma is needed in the following sentence:

Juan loves the characters of Ron and Hermione.

No comma is needed. The word 'and' is connecting the names 'Ron' and 'Hermione', but there is not a contrast and there are no more than two names in the list.

Decide if a comma is needed in the following sentence:

We were getting hungry so we stopped for lunch.

We were getting hungry, so we stopped for lunch. A comma is needed because 'so' is connecting two complete sentences.
