Fielders choice needs to record an out .. no such thing as I chose to keep the runner at third . She needs to record an out.. E5

This is incorrect

A fielder's choice is a play in which an infielder attempts to make a play at a base other than first base on a ground ball. When scoring a game, a fielder's choice is indicated as FC.

The play is scored as a fielder's choice whether the attempted play is successful or not, so not all fielder's choices result in an out

"Attempted play"

Needs to be an attempt at making a play. An active decision!

Standing and doing nothing is an error.

Defensive players need to learn to be quick thinkers and make immediate decisions at making a play, either at a base runner or the batter.

Hesitating.
Standing.
Staring.
Waiting.
Lingering.
* Are not a fielder's choice!

Make the play!
