The Importance of Punctuation Marks

1 min


Mr. Dwight was conducting a lecture on the proper use of punctuation marks. To ensure that his students have effectively learned a thing or two from his lessons, he conducted a brief exercise for them. He went to the blackboard and wrote, “Woman without her man is useless”. He called on two students – a boy and a girl – to place the proper punctuations in the given phrase.

To his amusement, the two had different answers. The boy wrote, “Woman, without her man, is useless”. Whereas, the girl wrote, “Woman! Without her, man is useless.”
