    Re: our main responsibility

    I see. Thank you, EMS. I didn't understand immediately what Rover meant; I am a bit slow.

    Would you please take a look at them again to see if I need to change something?

    You don't seem to have written your post again, taking into account the advice you've been given and laying it out the way I showed you before.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm sorry, Ems!

    I read the word "colon" as "comma".

    I asked the person who in charge a question. I said
    I've changed it like this. I think it's okay to use a "." after the word "question". Or I can use a comma, right?

    Please enlighten.

    It's the end of a sentence.

    Re: our main responsibility

    Say:

    I asked the person in charge a question. I said, "What will we be doing?

    Re: our main responsibility

    I'd write I asked the person in charge a question. I said "What will we be doing?"

    That's the layout I showed you in a previous thread, Silver. Don't put the sentence in quotes on a separate line. Put it on the same line as "I said".
