Asked by MichealEnglish 🇬🇧

Can you use a colon before a list of questions? For example, "A few questions that may come up are: how can. . ." Is that correct? Should the first question be capitalized (after the colon)?

Yes you can and no you don’t have to capitalise the question as a colon connects two sentences, because it’s not a new sentence you don’t need to use a capital letter. However you can choose to capitalise the question, both are actually correct.
