Using Punctuation Marks

Using  Punctuation
 
At the end of every sentence you need a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark. You then need a capital letter to start the next sentence.
 
A sentence is a group of words that makes sense on its own. For example:
Bilal went to the shops.
A sentence always has a subject (in this case ‘Bilal’) and a verb (‘went’).
 
Full stops are used much more than the other punctuation marks. They are placed at the end of a statement. For example:
She came back with milk. The car is red.
 
Question marks are placed after a question. For example:
Is this true? When will you go?
 
Exclamation marks are much less common and are often placed after a command. For example:
Come here! Sit down!
NOTE: commands don’t always need a subject.
Exclamations marks are also used to show surprise or that someone is shouting loudly. For example:
Let me out! Never!
