Help me with grading:
Marci's old car cost too much to repair so she bought a new car, but her new car is smaller than her old car.
I believe a second comma is needed after repair so it's read as "...repair, so she bought a new car, but..."
Is the sentence correct if a comma is put after repair, and incorrect if there is no comma after repair? Or is neither correct and it should be written another way?
Thanks in advance!
The comma is necessary before both so and but. However, how correct is it to have three independent clauses in a compound sentence? I've never seen that before. 0-0
