Question

Provide hyphens where they are needed in these sentences or select NR option if not required.
Our ex captain came to visit our football team.

  1. Came to
  2. Football team
  3. NR
  4. Ex captain
     

Hint:

The hyphen is a punctuation mark which is used to link two or more component words to form a compound word. It marks the boundary of distinct element words within a large compound word.

The correct answer is: Ex captain

 


    The correct answer is "ex captain".
    In the above sentence, the speaker is talking of his ex captain who came to visit the football team. Here, "ex"(former) and "captain" are presented as two individual words but actually the speaker wants to express the combined meaning derived from both these words. Thus, these two words must be linked to form the compound word "ex-captain"(the previous captain) and the hyphen mark should exist between both of them. So, the correct answer is "ex captain".
