I believe in my Sentence 1. I might have not added a phrase. So, I'd like to update it to:

Sentence 1. Of all the seasons, summer is the best time of the year in Canada.

Well done, everyone!

Olena, technically you added a phrase (a noun phrase appended to the subject), but it isn't really what I was looking for.

Audrey, your last sentence includes a dependent clause, not an independent one.

Very nice, Liudmila!

Cecilia, your second sentence uses a comma splice to join to independent sentences.

Hi Michael,

Was my second attempt incorrect too? (The message posted after Cecilia Marcillo.)

Thank you.

Hi, Olena. Your second attempt was well done.
