    Is the following statement about writing dialogue true or false: When a new speaker speaks, start a new paragraph.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When writing dialogue, it is true that starting a new paragraph when a new speaker speaks is a common practice.

By starting a new paragraph for each new speaker, it helps to distinguish their dialogue from others and makes it visually easier for readers to identify who is speaking.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that dialogue should be lengthy and go on and on is false. In writing, dialogue should be concise and focused, serving a specific purpose in advancing the plot or developing the characters. Lengthy dialogue can become tedious for the reader and may distract from the main points being conveyed. Effective dialogue is often characterized by brevity, clarity, and relevance to the overall story.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement about writing dialogue is true. According to standard grammar rules, end punctuation such as commas, periods, and question marks should always be placed inside the quotation marks when writing dialogue. This helps to clearly indicate that the punctuation is part of the quoted material and not separate from it.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. "Make sure you eat all of your vegetables for dinner," warned Mom.
    C. Aaron Rodgers yelled, "Hut, hut, hike!"
    Explanation
    The answer is correct because it demonstrates the correct use of dialogue punctuation. In both examples, the dialogue is properly enclosed in quotation marks, and the punctuation marks (comma and exclamation mark) are placed inside the quotation marks. Additionally, the dialogue tags ("warned Mom" and "Aaron Rodgers yelled") are correctly separated from the dialogue with a comma.
