Punctuation – some comma (,) uses

Here are 2 main ways to use the comma:

1. to separate 3 or more things in a series, including the last two.

“Ed drove through Toronto, Brampton, and Orangeville on his way to go skiing”

“My favorite foods are salmon, mangoes, and macaroni and cheese.” *

Punctuation: the question mark

A question mark (?) is a punctuation mark that replaces the full stop (period) at the end of a direct question.

“How old are you?”

“Where does Scott work?”

A question mark is not used for indirect questions.

“I asked my father if I could borrow the car.”

“I wonder if Obama will win again.”

It is also used at the end of a question tag.
