Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Recap • Colons are used after a complete sentence to begin listing items • Colons introduce block quotes • Colons follow the salutations of a business letter • Dashes are used between times, dates, and forms of indexing • Parentheses are used to include information that wouldn’t normally fit into the flow of your text
