Here is the item again:

Despite her parents' disapproval, (A) Tran continues to date Charlie. (B) A nice young man (C) whose only fault is not being born Vietnamese.

You correctly realized that the period after Charlie created a fragment. A nice young man whose only fault ... is an appositive, so it cannot stand alone as a complete sentence.

To fix this fragment, you chose to do this:

Despite her parents' disapproval, Tran continues to date Charlie, a nice young man whose only fault is not being born Vietnamese.

You have correctly applied Punctuation Rule 9:

Main Clause + , + Appositive.

Play that beautiful music!

Go to the next sentence.
