Question:

Read the\u00A0supporting details\u00A0then correct the sentence below. Sentence 10: Even more troubling, Tituba confesses that a conspiracy of witches permeated Salem Village. Which of the following changes should be made to correct sentence 10?

A Change \u201Cconfesses\u201D to \u201Cconfessed\u201D
Explaination

The sentence is in the past tense and the confession of Tituba would have taken place in 1692; therefore, you should use \u201Cconfesses\u201D in the past tense (\u201Cconfessed\u201D). The word \u201Cof\u201D is idiomatically correct and \u201Cwitches\u201D should not be capitalized. \u201CA\u201D is used correctly, as the word that follows it begins with a consonant.
