Hi teachers,

Should I use a capital letter after the colon in the following explanation:

Information: Express uncertainty or a very small probability in doing something.

Then comes the multiple choice exercise.

What about this one? Should I also use a capital letter after the colon?
Information: A secretary answers the phone.

Then comes the multiple choice exercise.

I've found this explanation:
In the explanation that follows the colon contains more than one sentence, you should use a capital letter.
In other cases, some guides simply advise consistenly, others advise that a capital should always be used.

So if I always use a capital letter after a colon, I'll always be right, won't I?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

In your example, you really don't need the word 'instructions' at all.
But if you use it, the colon is followed by one sentence.
I wouldn't use a capital.

Thank you very much Clive! I can see that the word 'intructions' it's much better than the one I wrote 'information'. [Y]
