I came across these two sentences:

  1. Today, his sculptures – which spin, tilt, and sway – belong to collections worldwide.

  2. Today, his sculptures – spin, tilt, and sway – belong to collections worldwide.

Which one would be correct? Or would they both be acceptable?

  • You could omit which if you are talking about three sculptures, titled Spin, Tilt, and Sway.

  • Another question on EL&U asks about this same test prep question. See ACT English question regarding dashes. There is actually some useful information in the comments (if I do say so myself), although both attempts at formal answers have been deleted.

Why the dashes G.B? There is nothing terribly wrong with sentence number one bereft of all dashes. Though it does contain a smattering of commas. Were it a sentence of my own i might grow two:

The sculptures spin, tilt, and sway. Today his art belongs to collections worldwide.
