Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

  1. I have two cars, one red and the other blue.
  2. I got them from two different places. One is from the store and the other, the bank.

Should there be a comma before 'blue?' Should there not be a comma before 'the bank?'

  • I don't know for english. But in my native language, we should add comma before blue. So, it should be "1. I have two cars, one red, and the other blue. 2. I got them from two different places. One is from the store and the other is from the bank." – user516076 Jun 16 '20 at 15:20

No, you don't need a comma. A better way of writing these two sentences:

  1. I have two cars, one is red and the other is blue.
  2. I got them from two different places, one is from the store and the other from the bank.

  • Thanks for your response. I get that they could be written to be easier to read. For stylistic purposes, are they ok as is even if a bit awkward? – drag0npunch Jun 16 '20 at 13:43
