i think its A but im not sure
C or D seems pretty silly honestly. And B makes no sense. A is correct :)
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Mother is capitalized only when the current speaker is addressing his or her mother directly. For example, "Mother, have you seen Father?".
However, if the current speaker is addressing her indirectly then the word 'mother' is not capitalized. For example, "My mother is the kindest person I know."
ok thank you. so A would be the correct answer?
I think so, because a possessive pronoun is known as truly indicating possession and is seen by words such as
"mine, yours, hers, theirs."
and A understates the fact that capitalizing mother in this sense would be the correct way to go.
Just because something is used as a parenthetical element in a sentence doesn't give it ground to be capitalized.
Then how does a possessive pronoun even make sense for this?
OK thank you. Can you guys help me in a few more questions?
