Choose the option that best corrects the sentence at the underlined point.

She called her accountant on Tuesday morning:

A

morning;

B

morning,

C

morning.

D

NO CHANGE

Answer

According to general rule, a period is used to mark the end of a complete sentence. Thus, the correct answer will be Option C, in place of the colon. 
The remaining options are incorrect, as a comma is used to indicate a pause whereas, a semi colon is used to separate major sentence elements. A colon is used to indicate emphasis or introduce a list.
