Created for Albert.io. September 2014

(6) Pole vaulting blind?

A

Yes. A fragment, which is a phrase lacking either a subject or a verb, is grammatically incorrect.

B

No. The writer is incorrect in thinking this is a fragment because "pole vaulting" is the verb and "blind" is the subject of a complete sentence.

C

Yes. While sentence fragments can be used, in certain cases, to create tension or pose rhetorical questions, this sentence fragment does not accomplish either of these two goals.

D

No. The question, placed here as a sentence fragment, adds impact and provides an excellent transition to the rest of the paragraph.
