Lesson 339

Mechanics - Punctuation - Periods

 

Use a period with abbreviations used with figures showing time. Examples: A.M., P.M., B.C., and A.D.

 

Instructions: Put periods where needed in the following sentences.

 

1. I was born in A D 1940.

 

2. Be here at 4:30 A M , or you will not see me until 9:45 P M

 

3. What happened in A D 1776 that was of great importance?

 

4. People living in 2000 B C did not enjoy all that we have today.

Answers:

 

1. A.D.

 

2. A.M. / P.M.

 

3. A.D.

 

4. B.C.

 

5. A.M.

 

(Notice that when a period is used for an abbreviation or some other reason at the end of the sentence, you do not need a second one to end the sentence. The one period does double duty.)
