    Are you sure that you have got the sentence right?

    Re: Select the underlined word or phrase that is incorrect..

    It's supposed to be incorrect. There's only one segment that's wrong, and there's only one answer that could be the wrong bit.

    Re: Select the underlined word or phrase that is incorrect..

    I don't see any of the answers as being incorrect.

    Re: Select the underlined word or phrase that is incorrect..

    I'm with Raymott. Only one of the four choices given could be underlined as the incorrect part of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I know, but it doesn't strike me as a good example of this type of question.

    Re: Select the underlined word or phrase that is incorrect..

    Really? Hard to do this without giving the answer away to the OP but ... Sing/pl (pre-comma) + vb (post-comma).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Select the underlined word or phrase that is incorrect..

    I consider the verb to be wrong, but that is not one of the choices.
