Punctuation Quizzes & Trivia

“Hunters please use caution when haunting pedestrians using walk trails”, “Doing it right. Before your eyes.” “Attention! Toilet only for disabled elderly pregnant children”, “Gentlemen “NO” tank tops allowed”, “My hobbies include: eating dogs, reading, running, and music”. These examples, regardless of how amusing they are, show the importance of correct usage of punctuation in written communication.

“How do you punctuate a quote within a quote within a quote?”, “Do you always put a period and a comma inside quotation marks?”, “How is a question containing a quote that is a declarative sentence, punctuated?”, and “Where does the apostrophe stand in a plural possessive?” These questions might seem difficult at first, but they make the difference between “time to eat children!”, and “time to eat, children!”
