Which would be correct if the original sentence is "Sam went to the park, played on the jungle gym, and then he went home" (45).?
"Sam went to the park, . . . and then he went home" (45).
"Sam went to the park . . . and then went home" (45).
I've looked on numerous websites but I can't find that information anywhere. Thanks for any help :)
