National Punctuation Day

Today, friends, is National Punctuation Day, “a celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotes, and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”

In honor of this literary holiday, the Huffington Post news editors have put together an essential punctuation quiz. Test yourself, test your friends, and celebrate the mysterious power of the semicolon.

For each quiz question, there are two sentences with correct punctuation and one sentence with a punctuation error. Select the sentence WITH the error to win big. Enjoy.

I got 7/8 correct, I was wrong about the incorrect use of brackets. Take the quiz.
