Answer Key

Q. Punctuate the following sentences.

1. B
The comma separates a phrase.

2. C
A period or an exclamation mark is used to end an imperative sentence, that is, at the end of a direction or a command.

3. B
A period is used to end an indirect question. An indirect question is always a part of a declarative sentence and it does not require an answer.

4. C
A question mark is used to end an interrogative sentence, that is, at the end of a direct question which requires an answer.

5. A
Use a comma to separate phrases.

6. A
Possessive pronouns ending in ‘s’ take an apostrophe before the ‘s’: one’s; everyone’s;
somebody’s, nobody else’s, etc.

7. A
Titles of short stories are enclosed in quotation marks.

8. C
No additional punctuation is required here.

9. B
Here the word “sale” is used as a “word” and not as a word in the sentence, so quotation
marks are used.

10. C
Titles of short stories are enclosed in quotation marks, and commas always go
inside quotation marks. Use an exclamation mark to end an exclamatory sentence, that is, at the end of a statement showing strong emotion.

11. A
Use an exclamation mark after an imperative sentence if the command is urgent and forceful.

Use an exclamation mark after an imperative sentence if the command is urgent and forceful.
