    I am new here. I'd like to know which of the following sentence is correct:

    Look out!. A car is coming! or

    Look out! A car is coming. or

    Look out, a car is coming!

    Which one is correct?

    Either the first or the second is correct. However, since you clearly have two separate sentences, the third one is not correct. Also, since you deinitely have two exclamations, I would only use the first one.

    (Say: "Which of the following sentences is correct?")

    :)

    Welcome to our forum!



    (I probably should have said Both one and two are correct.)
