At the risk of being branded a nitpicker, I'd like to suggest the removal of the period (full stop) since the end of the sentence in question 3 doesn't arrive until question 4 in this test.

Nitpickers of the world, untie!

(I apologize if that has gotten old... I think I posted something similar a couple of months ago.)

At the personal motivation of wanting to post on-topic, I agree with the previous post by Amy. As the example is presented here, it is not a complete sentence.
