Good try, Josie. But your last sentence uses a comma splice rather than a coordinating conjunction.

Well done, Angel. But remember not to insert a comma before a preposition.

Good try, Leah. But your first sentence adds a dependent clause (rather than a phrase), and your last sentence uses a comma splice.
