    Post Punctuation of [though]

    1. She achieved success, though she doesn’t do well on EQ test.
    2. She achieved success. Though she doesn’t do well on EQ test.
    3. She achieved success, though, she doesn’t do well on EQ test.

    4. She achieved success. Though, she doesn’t do well on EQ test.
    5. She achieved success though she doesn’t do well on EQ test.

    Hi,

    I am confused about the punctuation before and after "though"
    Would you please help me on that? I don't know which one is correctly punctuated.
    Thank you.

    The punctuation of #1 is fine. Did you mean IQ tests?

    No, I meant EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient)

    Anyway, thanks.

    Shouldn't "Emotional Intelligence Quotient" be abbreviated "EIQ"?

    You would think so, wouldn't you? But a quick Google search showed me that your EI is measured as an EQ.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
