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

They walk the dog in the evening;

A

NO CHANGE

B

evening:

C

evening,

D

evening.

Answer

According to general rule, a period is used to mark the end of a complete sentence. Thus, the correct answer will be Option D, in place of the semi 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.
