  17. ARE THESE SENTENCES CORRECT? FOCUS ON COMMAS 

    We can go to the party, I suppose, if we don't stay too late.

  18. Choose the word or words that should be capitalized in the following sentence:

    (B)German, Math
    (C)German 
    (C) GERMAN. 

    DO NOT CAPITALIZE THE NAME OF ACADEMIC SUBJECTS, EXCEPT LANGUAGES.

    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  19. Choose the word or words that should be capitalized in the following sentence:

    The story's setting is a swiss mountain.
    (A)Swiss 
    (B)Swiss Mountain
    (C)Mountain  
    (A) Swiss

    only Swiss needs to be capitalized because it is a proper adjective. Mountain is not capitalized because it is not the name of a place.

    TAKE HOME: NOTE THE "A". IT'S A SWISS MNT. NOT A PARTICULAR MNT. 

    IF THE SENTENCE WAS "..in the Rocky Mountains" then it's capped. 

    ALSO NOTICE THE "THE" IS NOT CAPPED BEFORE ROCKY. DON'T CAP THE "THE" WHEN REFERRING TO LOCATIONS.
