What’s Missing Contest: Answer

horse

Last week’s contest was to correct the sentence below:

I hung my coat on the pegs that line one wall.

When I first read this sentence, the image of a coat draped across a line of pegs on a wall came to mind. Here’s a better way to write it:

I hung my coat on one of the pegs that line a wall in the entryway.

Cheers,
