Answer:

(Below are only examples; there are many "correct" answers, as a personal style may dictate usage of certain punctuation.) a) Semicolons are used to separate two closely related independent clauses; this means both clauses must have a subject and verb. b) I must tell you: colons are not difficult to use correctly in your writing, and will often add a bit of excitement to otherwise dull sentence structure. c) Commas should be used sparingly, but never forget to use them when necessary. d) Once we finished with the exercise, he told me, "I can't believe how easy that was!"
