The (most studied) form of curiosity (is called) interest-type curiosity, (it is the) motivation to learn something (because) it is entertaining or novel.

Is the error here the fact that “it” is an ambiguous pronoun in the sentence?


The error isn’t that it’s vague, it’s that the sentence is a run-on: the parts before and after the comma are both complete thoughts. If you change the “it” to “which,” then you make the second clause dependent on the first, fixing the run-on.

Thanks, do you see comma splice errors often in error identification? This is a recent SAT question, so i assume they do also come up occasionally in error id.
