Hi,

Generally speaking, we commonly capitalize all the words in a title or subtitle, although sometimes not the minor words in the middle like 'of', the'. However, if the title is a complete sentence and not just a phrase, sometimes we capialize it all and sometimes we don't. It's a style choice, whichever way you think looks better.

If 'Ex' is a title/subtitle as in your example, I'd write it as 'Ex' followed by a period. In the middle of a sentence, the common form is 'e.g.'. Often, the two periods are omitted.

We commonly capitalize UFO. We tend to think of it as a proper name.

Best wishes, Clive

Supplementary for present participle:
Adjectives ending in "ing" can be used to describe on-going actions.
Ex1. The parents took the crying child out of the theater.
Ex2. The increasing sales pleased the producers of the film.
Adjectives ending in "ing" can be used to describe what something is used for.
Ex1.Please wipe the writing table.

Here are my judgement to which ones are titles and which ones are subtitles.
Title:Participial Adjectives (Adjectives Ending in -ING and -ED)
Subtitles: Interest, Supplemantary for Past Participle
Because they are titles or subtitles , I capitalise them.

"Adjectives ending in "ing" can be used to describe on-going actions."
This is not a subtitle and a title so I don't capitalise all the words. I capitalise only the first word because it is a sentence.

"-ing" = active
"-ed" = passive
I have no ideas whether I should capitalise it.

Many thanks in advance

"The EX1." here is not a subtitle or a title.
So I should write it as e.g.1. The parents took....
Am I right?
Many thanks in advance
What is the difference bewteen e.g. and ex

Here, it's like a little minor title.

I'd write it as

Ex. 1. The parents took the crying child out of the theater.

or better still,

Example 1. The parents took the crying child out of the theater.

What is the difference bewteen e.g. and ex

'ex' is an abbeviation of the word 'example'.

'e.g.' is an abbreviation of Latin words that mean 'here is an example'.

There is a lot of furniture in my living room, eg a couch.

Use eg but not ex. in the context of a sentence.
