Re: punctuations.

Should I use a comma or a full stop in the following sentences?

1. I would like to know (no comma here) [STRIKE]did[/STRIKE] if I [STRIKE]put[/STRIKE] used the correct [STRIKE]punctuations[/STRIKE] punctuation.
A sentence that starts with "I would like to know" is not a question. "Punctuation" is used uncountably. If you want to use a plural, use "punctuation marks".


2. They have magical powers to change me, such as...

3. We have magical powers to change the world, for example...

See above.
