Notice the use of an exclamation mark at the end of this sentence.

The use of an exclamation mark "!" is a good indication that the sentence is an exclamation. An exclamation, or exclamatory sentence, shows excitement. When you are wishing someone a happy birthday, you are most likely excited for that person that it's his/her birthday. 

Example Question #2 : Print Concepts

If you were to put the following words in alphabetical order, select the word that would come first. 

lucky, fly, night, kite

Possible Answers:





Correct answer:



When we are putting words in alphabetical order, we look at the first letter of each word. If all of the first letters are different, we pick which ever word had the first letter that comes first in the alphabet. In this case, all of our words start with a different letter. 

Let's take a look at our alphabet and find the letters that start each of our words. 


As you can see, F comes first, which means fly is the correct answer.
