User: consider the following sentence:"soccer is growing in popularity in the southern American states, in Texas, for example, where football has long been king, high school seniors are choosing to play soccer over football in increasing numbers." In this sentence 1. the comma between states and in could properly be replaced with a semicolon. 2. the comma between Texas and for could properly be replaced with a semicolon. 3. the comma between king and high could properly be replaced with a semicolon. or 4. all commas could appropriately be replaced with semicolons

Weegy: 2. the comma between Texas and for could properly be replaced with a semicolon is the answer.

In the sentence "Soccer is growing in popularity in the southern American states, in Texas, for example, where football has long been king, high school seniors are choosing to play soccer over football in increasing numbers", the comma between "states" and "in" could properly be replaced with a semicolon.
