Indicate whether the underlined words or groups of words need capital or lower case letters by selecting the best choice. If an underlined section is correct, select "No change."

Alejandro shared his concerns about the increased crime with councilmember Middleton but was told to contact another councilmember.
A. Councilmember middleton but was told to contact another councilmember
B. Councilmember Middleton but was told to contact another Councilmember
C. Councilmember Middleton but was told to contact another councilmember
D. No change

I believe the answer is D because I don't think that the word "Councilmember" is a proper noun so there's no need to capitalize it and in all the examples, "Councilmember" starts with a capital. I think that the sentence is fine the way it is or am I not seeing something that really is there? Any help is appreciated!

    Isn't Middleton supposed to be capitalized?

  • Business Communication -

    Yes. It is capitalize in the original sentence. That's why I think that the answer is D. I don't think there should be a change. I think "Councilmember" shouldn't be capitalized because it's not a proper noun.

  • Business Communication -

    I think Councilmember should be capitalized because it's used here as part of the title -- Mrs. Jones, President Obama, Senator Leghorn, etc.

  • Business Communication -

    Oh, alright. In that case the answer would be C. Because that would include the "Councilmember Middleton" and also the second one is lower case. I think that would be the correct answer then.

  • Business Communication -

    Right. The answer is C.

    Thank you so much, Ms. Sue! I appreciate all the help you have been giving me! :)
