separated by "and" or "or"
which is appropiate and correct?
i've an apple and an orange
i've an apple and have an orange
i've an apple and i have an orange
how about these sentences?
a) i've a car and am going to school
b) i've a car and i am going to school
None -- you have made three fundamental errors in all three sentences.
(A) You must always, without exception, capitalize the first letter of the first word in a sentence. (B) You must always, again without exception, capitalize the personal pronoun "I".
(C) You must always, I repeat always, end a sentence with punctuation -- a period, a question mark, or an exclamation point.
Those basic errors aside, #1 is correct. #2 is also correct but seldom used (it makes an elliptical reference to the subject "I"), and #3 would be correct if a comma were added after apple. (There is some debate whether #2 also requires a comma in the same place, but most style manuals say no.)
