Capitalisation and Hypens
by Camille Ablao
This is an inquiry with regards how you are going to write answers in the answer sheet.
When I do practice exams in listening, I sometimes capitalize the first letter of my answer (because the answer is found in the beginning of the sentence, and it is not a proper noun), but looking at the key answers, it was not capitalized.
Will I be marked wrong for it? Does it mean proper nouns are the only accepted case for capitalizing the first letter of the word, not because it is the first word in the sentence?
How about if i did not put a hyphen in between 2 words that needs one? will they mark it wrong?
hope you will help me with my confusion. I will be taking my exam in 5 days.
