Periods Question Marks and Exclamation Marks

  • Use a period at the end of a declarative sentence, a sentence that is a
    request, and one that includes a mild command.

    Our blue couch will soon be replaced. (declarative sentence)
    Please help me. (request)
    Let’s be quiet. (mild command)

  • Use a period after abbreviations.
    Dr. (Doctor) Mr. (Mister) ft. (foot) in. (inch)
  • Use a question mark at the end of an interrogative sentence.v Have you finished your dinner, Sven?
    Note: The speaker’s exact words should be placed within the quotation
    marks. If those words form a question, place the question mark inside
    the quotation marks.

    Jason asked, ‘‘Is this my slice of pizza?’’

    Note: If the speaker’s exact words are a statement but are within a
    sentence that asks a question, place the question mark outside the
    quotation marks.

    Did Mollie say, ‘‘Tomorrow is the deadline’’?

  • Use an exclamation mark at the end of an exclamatory sentence.

    This is too good to be true!

    Note: If a speaker’s exact words require an exclamation mark, place that
    mark within the quotation marks.

    ‘‘What a great performance!’’ Emma remarked to James.
    Note: If a speaker’s exact words are a statement, and the
    entire sentence is an exclamation, place the exclamation mark
    outside the quotation marks.
    It is hard to believe that Mark ever said, ‘‘I think that you’re right’’!

    Bhai Dooj Cards

    Bhai Dooj, also known as Yama Dwitiya, is celebrated with great gaiety all over the country. It falls two days after the festival of Diwali and on this day, sisters pray for the long and cherished life of their brothers. Also, they perform tika ceremony, aarti and offer sweets to their brothers. In return, brothers give gifts and blessings to their sisters. For performing the rituals, sisters decorate the puja thalis very beautifully and all the rituals take place on the platform on which the Diwali puja is performed. This festival holds great significance in Hindu religion and there are various Hindu mythology legends related to this festival. Sisters, who are away from their brothers, send Bhai Dooj tika along with the gifts and greeting cards to your brothers, expressing your love and gratitude for them.
