Review: Sentence Usage, Answer 3.2

Good work!

Question:
The citizens of Kingston have gone too long without decent bicycle paths!
Answer:
The answer ineffective sentence is correct.
Explanation:
While the issue of bicycle paths is an important one, the writer has made a serious mistake here by using an exclamatory sentence—it makes the tone look forced and the writer insincere. Use an exclamatory sentence only when a point is truly shocking.
