Using Comma


Rule-1:  Use commas to separate three or more items in a series.   Place commas after each word in the series except the last.

Examples:

1.     A ginger, a dancer, and a clown were in the movie. 
2.   Carol dressed quickly, grabbed an apple, and ran out of the      house.



 Rule-2:  Use a comma after introductory words such as yes, no, or well.

Examples:

1.     Yes, I can hear you. 
2.     Well, you are wrong. 
3.     No, don’t say that.



Rule-3:  Use a comma when you use AND, BUT, or OR  to combine two sentences.  Put a comma before these words.

Examples:

1.     Do you want some coffee, or want to go out for dinner first? 
2.   The birthday girl entered her office room, and we all shouted    “Happy Birthday!”
  

EXERCISE: (Put commas wherever necessary)

1.     No I don’t know his name.

2.    Robby ordered a cup of coffee some biscuits and a chocolate      cake.

3.    What do Angelina Jolie  Michelle Phiffer  and Cameron Diaz        have in common?

4.     Tim  Joy  Sue and Trisha went for a movie.
