Traffic Crash Report

Which of the following replacements corrects the report?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The first part of this sentence (“After listening to instructions”) is an introductory clause. An introductory clause should be followed by a comma. Thus, option A is the correct response.

After Action Report

Protesters at the Embassy began throwing rocks through the windows. Officers repelled the crowd and gained control of the situation, making 10 arrests.

Which of the following sentences, if added to the beginning of the paragraph, provides the best introduction?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The first sentence of a paragraph should serve to introduce the material in the rest of the paragraph. While all of the sentences are indeed related to the rocks being thrown, crowd control, and arrests, option D does this most clearly. Option A focuses on the beauty of the embassies, Option B is focused on officers working hard, Option C focuses on the rocks, and Option E focuses on vehicle damage, none of which are the focus of the paragraph.

[2] He was later apprehended by Officer Johnson.
[3] A search of his vehicle revealed stolen property.

[5] He was taken into custody and transported to the police station for further questioning.

Which of the following options best maintains the logical sequence of events in the report?

Incident and Offense Report

[1] An attendee at the rally was delayed in entering due to the need to go through enhanced screening. [2] After this incident, he was removed from the premises. [3] The attendee then became verbally abusive toward the officer in charge of the checkpoint. [4] The attendee became agitated and claimed that the delay was unwarranted. [5] The officer in charge attempted to explain the need for added security.

Which of the following options best addresses the report title?"

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The most logical order is the order in Option B. Option A is incorrect because sentence 2 (the attendee being removed) cannot occur before the argument that ensued due to the delay. Option C is incorrect because sentence 4 (the individual becoming agitated) must occur before sentence 2 (the individual being removed from the premises). Option D is incorrect because it suggests that the attendee became verbally abusive (sentence 3) before anything occurred that could produce such a response. Option E is incorrect because it does not mention the delay (sentence 1) until the end of the paragraph, while the rest of the paragraph is based on the individual becoming upset because of the delay.

Witness Statement Report:

The witness provided a statement detailing the events leading up to the incident, and was cooperative throughout the investigation process.

Which of the following replacements corrects the report?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Choice D, "during the investigation," offers a more concise and precise description of the witness's cooperation duration, avoiding redundancy and improving clarity.

Traffic Crash Report

The individual collided with the barrier because he was holding his coffee, adjusting his radio, and sent a text while driving.

Which of the following replacements corrects the report?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
In the sentence, the construction shifts from past progressive (“was holding”, “adjusting”) to simple past (“set”). To improve this sentence, all should be written using the same construction. The best way to do this is using option D so that they all are written using the past progressive tense.
