Question and answer
In academic writing, however, you must strive to use appropriate punctuation and capitalization. Why do you need to use appropriate punctuation, including plurals and possessives, in your writing?
There are occasions when inaccurate punctuation or spelling can alter the entire sense of a phrase. ''A cross-section of the public'' specifies a broad range of people but if you omit the hyphen, [ the group is merely annoyed rather than being representative of the population. A panda might be described as an animal that ''eats shoots and leaves'' but if you state ''eats, shoots and leaves''
then you have a creature that shows off its skills with a gun before departing. ]

irregular verbs, prepositional phrase, dependent clause, compund subject, and idefinite pronouns. Which mistake do you think is the worst? Why?
Weegy: Those aren't mistakes you've listed. Those are types of various parts of speech. [ If you mean which of those is the worst to make mistakes with, then I think all are equally bad because all make your writing harder to understand and less pleasing to read. I don't think you can see a mistake with one part of speech is worse than another. ] (More)
