what  is  meant  by    more  than  two  words  in  comma

Answer:
Let's suppose you bought a few things from the supermarket and have to write about it in a sentence. Since you must have purchased more than two things, a comma should be used to list the items in your sentence.
 
Example:
 
Sentence: We bought chips, cream biscuits, milk cartons, detergent and spices from the supermarket. 
 
In the above sentence, commas have been used to list the underlined words in a series. 
 
In some cases, if you are asked to use the oxford/serial comma:
 
Sentence: We bought chips, cream biscuits, milk cartonsdetergent, and spices from the supermarket. 
 
There will be a comma even after the second last item (detergent) and before the conjunction (and) in the sentence.
 
I hope the explanation helps. 
 
Happy Studying!
