    [Comma rules] Just checking

    Sentence:

    If your are done with the lab A and you have already finished the report, you are allowed to begin your term project.

    Q1. Do I need a comma after "lab A"?

    Q2. If the sentence is reduced like the following, do I need a comma after "lab A"?

    If you are done with the lab A and have already finished the report, you are allowed to begin your term project.

    Q3. Is the above sentence grammatically correct?

    Q4. I think I learned that you are supposed to put the question mark within the quotation if the sentence ends with the quotation. Does this apply only to clauses/sentences?

    For example:

    A. Do I need a comma after "lab A"?

    B. He asked, "Why the project had to be abandoned?"


    Thanks in advance.

    No, you don't. It's optional.
