I think it's C.Because, lemme put commas on each sentences....(1) If you ask me, Jerry is a tennis whiz. (2) When she is worried, Lucille eats a lot. (3) Jerry loves tennis, he plays everyday. (4) Lucille bought a new tennis racket and brought it home. << Where should I put it?So, (4) is automatically out of question. (1) and (2) seems okay with comma, but (3) is a little bit weird. (3) supposed to have 'and' in the middle, but it's not there. So, you can put semicolon there, to separate the words.
