  1. At b, the interval between the parts is a 4th.
  2. From c to d, the added part leaps a 7th.
  3. At d, there is a compound 4th between the parts.
  4. At g, the lowest note is not the key note (G).

Here is a corrected example. There are other correct solutions.

These are the changes:

  1. At b, the 4th has been changed to a 3rd.
  2. From c to d, the leap of a 7th has been changed to a 6th.
  3. At d, the inverval is now a compound 3rd.
  4. At g, the final bass note has been changed to G, the key note or tonic.

This is an even better version, using a dotted rhythm on plain notes and some passing notes.
