Question:

Which of the following is correctly punctuated?

A (B) The artist Prince, whose death shocked America in April of 2016, was one of the most successful musical artists of the last century.
explanation

The inessential appositive phrase “whose death shocked America in April of 2016” is correctly set apart from the rest of the sentence by commas. Choices A and D use the semicolon and colon incorrectly, and Choice C incorrectly pairs an em dash with a comma.
