While I agree that the grammar of the correct answer + the question isn't proper English, I'll give this a free pass.

"All of the above" answers are meta-answers and aren't written like the others. They aren't intended to complete the sentence or the fill in the blank.

More great wording and punctuation.

With R1 on third base and R2 on first base, there is one out. B4 hits a ground ball, which contacts R2 after it has passed F3 and no other fielder has a chance to make an out. The correct ruling is:

a.

b.
The ball remains live, unless it is determined that R2 intentionally contacted the ball, then the ball is dead, R2 is out, and R1 is returned to third base and B4 is awarded first base.
