Could someone tell me if this is right? Correct the capitalization and punctuation of this sentence. he is meghans uncle. would it be, "He is Meghans Uncle." or "He is Meghans uncle."?

    It would be "He is Meghan's uncle." if that's one of the options

    okay, I kinda feel dumb for asking that but I just didn't remember in what case you would capitalize the word "uncle". Thanks :)

    It's ok. Uncle is only capitalized if you're using it as part of their name like "Uncle Steve." But if your just describing them like "Steve is an uncle" then you don't need to. Same with mom. You call your mother "Mom" but she is a "mom" with lowercase if that makes any sense.

    Also Meghan has to have an apostrophe to say that he is her uncle so "Meghan's" instead of "Meghans"
