    Punctuation in a question

    Hi All,

    Can you suggest me a source where I can read about punctuation used inside or around a question?

    Also is the punctuation in the following sentence correct?

    Did you finish it already ? or I have to work on it.


    Thanks,

    MG.

    Punctuation in a question will be the same as for any sentence, except that the concluding mark is the question mark.

    Your sentence can be written in three ways :

    Did you finish it or do I have to work on it?

    Did you finish it? Will I have to work on it?

    Did you finish it? I have to work on it.


    Have you finished it already or will I have to work on it?
    is another way of saying this.
