Hi,

I was wondering if all these sentences are correct?

Bob has a cat and he has a dog.

He has a cat and has a dog.

He has a cat and a dog.


I am confident the last sentence is correct, but I'm not sure sure about the first ones. The subject I'm not sure about is whether you can have parallelism with the antecedent and pronoun as the subjects in your separate arguments?(As stated in the first sentence)?


Thanks!

In the first sentence you have to put comma after cat to make it correct;

Bob has a cat, and he has a dog.

Rule:Two independent clause cannot be joined by and.

Hi bbui11,

There is an awesome video on parallelism by Ron. It should clarify your understanding of the topic:
