A: Did you hear that Thomas Green was knighted by the Queen of England last week?

B: That's quite an achievement.


Question: What should we call Thomas Green now?
(1)Man of the year. (The Man in the Moon? )
(2)Sir Thomas Green.
(3)Mr. Thomas Green.
(4)Duke Thomas Green.


I don't who's who. But then how can I make a good guess?

FYI:
Sir used before the name of a man who is a KNIGHT or BARONET

hahahah. I see. I should have looked it up first before I posted it.

Thanks, FRC and Lara Craft. Is graveyard shift a killer? :)

You call a knight Sir + first name, so he'd be Sir Thomas. As one who doesn't believe in these honours, I'd call him Mr Greene. ;-0
