Where do punctuation marks go when using quotes?
In a quote, punctuation marks always go inside the quotation marks. For example, Angel said, "That is how you do it." when she got on stage. Although, when using a question mark in a quote, it depends on if the quote itself is a question. If the quote is a question, the question mark goes inside the quote like: Gary said, "How could you be so cruel?". If the quote is NOT a question, the question mark goes outside of the quote like: Did you mean to "panic the public" when you said that?
When do you use a semi colon in a sentence?
To join two related independent clauses in place of a comma and conjunction.
What is the main purpose for journalists in the United States?
To serve as "watchdogs" for government agencies while providing factual information to the public.
