Take another look at the item:

Mrs. Neal loves chocolate cake. (A) But couldn't accept the slice that her student Michael offered (B) because she knew that it was a bribe (C) for a better grade on his midterm essay.

You wanted to do this:

Mrs. Neal loves chocolate cake. But couldn't accept the slice that her student Michael offered. Because she knew that it was a bribe for a better grade on his midterm essay.

A period after offered makes a fragment. Because she knew ... is a subordinate clause which cannot stand alone as a complete sentence.

You might want to review the rules.

Go back to the sentence to try again.
