USE A SEMICOLON Between two finish sentences associated by words like however , hence , thus , all things considered , and after that . Illustration: We are making study advisers for help understudies get ready for the tests ; be that as it may, understudies\' scores are reflecting change.

USE A SEMICOLON Between things of an arrangement that have inward commas. Illustration: I purchased an old, weather beaten seat ; a marble best table, which was in excellent condition ; and another, appalling white floor covering .

USE A COLON Between an entire sentence and a rundown or clarification, or going before a long, formal citation. It would be ideal if you take note of that an entire sentence must go before a colon.
