    Default Please clarify my issue with full stop.

    Can we use fulll stop for a single sentence or not.


    Example: Please clarify my issue with full stop.

    Is the example correct or not.

    Yes, and your sentence is correct.

    ... except that it needs an article or a plural:

    Please clarify my issue with the full stop.
    Please clarify my issue with full stops.


    In some contexts, you could use 'a': "I've been wondering about something. If you have time before tomorrow, could you help clarify my issue with a full stop."

    [But I guess dawoodusmani knew this; the sentence was correct as far as the full stop was concerned.]
