Editor’s Corner: Quiz on Capitals

Today’s quiz is on capital letters. We’ve done one of these before, but I’ve noticed that people still get very excited about their subject matter, and tend to use capitals where they don’t belong.

Choose the correct answers, then use the voting buttons (in Outlook) to send in your selections. Answers and explanations will be provided sometime this afternoon. Good luck!

Choose the correct sentence from each group:

#1

A) I plan to take economics as well as statistics 101 next semester.

B) I plan to take economics as well as Statistics 101 next semester.

C) I plan to take Economics as well as Statistics 101 next semester.
