Punctuation Quiz: The Dash

Test your understanding of dash use

The exercise below requires you to punctuate a sentence by placing one or more dashes in the correct place. Be careful to use a dash and not a hyphen (Use the hyphen key with the ALT or OPTION key) and place a single space between a dash and a word.

You can copy and paste from the question to the answer window but be careful to include the complete sentence.

You can make as many attempts as you wish for each question, but each attempt is only counted if your submission is close to the correct answer. After five close attempts you will have the option of seeing the correct answer. By clicking on the red square you can see further feedback about the correct answer. You will be able to see your quiz statistics (correct answers and number of attempts) once you have attempted all ten questions.
