Do you actually know English?

The options are phrased very poorly, yeah.  


Basically, it has to combine independent clauses that are related....in other words, both sides of the semicolon must have a subject and verb.  


Technically, even if independent clauses are closely related, it's fine to just use a period to separate them.  Another option is to use a comma and a coordinating conjunction (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so...FANBOYS).  


So let's take these 2 closely related independent clauses:


IC 1:  The dog is wet (sub=dog, verb=is)

IC 2:  He hates it. (sub=he, verb=hates)


These are the three ways to combine them:


1) Use as semicolon:  The dog is wet; he hates it. 

2) Use a comma and coordinating conjunction: The dog is wet, and he hates it.

3) Use a good old-fashioned period:  The dog is wet.  He hates it.  


Excellent run down...I wait with baited breath for : and -
