    Ok these questions just need a little thinking out

    3. For A. macedonia should be capitalized, C. "who's is the start of a sentence within a sentence, and D. valley and spring should not be capitalized as they are not proper nouns. That leaves B. to be the correct statement.

    8. A. would be the incorrect statement as counter aguments are not in parentheses but made as a seperate statement or even better a seperate paragraph.

    9. Let me give you this statemment and see if it helps. "The game is ours!"

    14. The first sentence of a paragraph is always the topic of said paragraph. The rest of the paragraph supports the topic sentance.

    17. A fits this question as with the p.m. statement any document should always be consistant. If you use pm for one spot then it should be pm throughout. If c is correc then the statement "I am going for my Ph. D." would be incorrect right? A $ should always follow an amount, if it does not then the word dollar should be used.

    18 D is the incorrect answer reform is one word not 2.

    19. "Jane's soufflé should win the blue ribbon." does not need quotation marks in this sentence. The rain may stop by noon, however, we still can't attend the picnic, should be noon; and it's should be its. Hershey's is correct because the company owns the chocolate factory.

    I hope that tis help you answer the questions. Lisa
