A Test on Parenthetical Punctuation

A Test on Parenthetical Punctuation

Below is a test on choosing parenthetical punctuation, i.e., commas, dashes, and parentheses (brackets), to offset a parenthesis. (This test is linked to the entry on parenthesis in Grammar Monster's glossary of terms.)

Note: Some of the answers marked wrong cross are not wrong but are not as tidy as the correct version.
