Is the thing about a comma before "and" in a list, such as
helium, neon, and argon
helium, neon and argon

a little pedantic if you don't mind me asking? I've had quizzes returned JUST for that and is it really worth waiting 2 months to have it returned for something nbody will even notice? It's not a major grammar error or anything

Chemistry is awesome!

Anyone who submits a quiz needs to follow the Quiz Making Guidelines:
Use commas to separate three or more words or phrases written in a series. Don't forget the last comma before the conjunction; it isn't optional. "I like grapes, apples, and oranges."

The QuizMasters don't pick and choose which rules to follow; we ensure quizzes follow all the guidelines.
