We always end a sentence with a period but sometimes we can use a question mark instead. A question mark should be used when you are writing a question. It works in the same way as a period and should only be written at the end of the sentence that asks something. Once it appears, the next word should be capitalized as it is a new sentence.

1.
Which of these is a question?
Flowers smell nice
Can you smell the flower
This girl is smelling a flower
Flowers come in different colors
Each short sentence will end with either a period, exclamation or question mark. Read each phrase aloud to help you decide which one would need an answer.
2.
Which of these is a question?
I like chocolate cake
This is a picture of chocolate cake
Would you like some chocolate cake
I made that chocolate cake
If a question needs just a 'yes' or 'no' answer it is called a 'closed' question but if you can answer in sentences, then it's an 'open ended' question.
3.
Which one is a question?
What's your favorite color
There are many colors in the rainbow
I know a song about a rainbow
My favorite color is blue
The word 'what' tells a reader immediately that you are being asked a question and you need to reply.
4.
Which of these is not a question?
How big is he
What does he eat
Elephants are mammals
Where do they live
Elephants are the largest land animals in the world.

Can you drive
When did you learn to drive

6.
A question must always end with a question mark. Which answer is correctly formatted?
How long are crocodiles?
Do all crocodiles have tails.
How long do crocodiles live for!

If we are asking a question then only a question mark (?) will do. Any other form of punctuation is incorrect.
7.
Which answer is correctly punctuated?
Are all frogs poisonous??
How high can frogs jump!
Do frogs sleep
Are all frogs green?
A frog is an amphibian. They lay their eggs in water, which hatch into tadpoles.
8.
Which question is perfect?
do you sing in the shower?
Do you sing in the shower?
Do you? sing in the shower?
Do you sing in the? shower?
Remember to only have the punctuation at the end of the sentence/question. Then the next sentence will begin with a capital letter.
9.
Which of these choices is written perfectly?
Do you walk to school. My mom drives me.
Do you walk to school. My mom drives me?
Do you walk to school? My mom drives me?
Do you walk to school? My mom drives me.
You need to make sure the question mark is given only to the question.
10.
Which of these choices is written perfectly?
Can you play the piano? My best friend loves her piano lessons.
Can you play the piano? my best friend loves her piano lessons.
Can you play the piano? My best friend loves her piano lessons?

Even though a question and exclamation mark look different to a period, they still do the same thing. All three are called 'end stops' because they end a sentence.
