    Re: Using thank inside a statement

    A and B are two people, so 'they thank C' not 'they thanks C'.

    The pronoun 'to' does not collocate with 'in' or 'for' in this context.

    The reason for the full stop is that no sentence is grammatically correct without a final punctuation mark.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
