Pole Vaulting Blind

Created for September 2014

(6) Pole vaulting blind?


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


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.


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.


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