    1. stood there only a platform
    2. there stood only a platform
    3. an only platform stood there
    4. an only platform there stood


    and when ,(comma) after the town hall is deleted, is there any kind of different point of grammar?

    thanks a lot for your help.

    No. This is a question of an examination test. It's already over, but I want to know the correct answer.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello, Hgdear:

    In my opinion, this sentence is one that definitely calls for a comma after the word "vanished":

    "All signs of the market have vanished, and in front of the town hall, _____."

    Now let's drop the first part of this compound sentence:

    "In front of the town hall, there stood only a platform" or (in regular order): "There stood only a platform in front of the town hall."
