(Are both grammatical?)

3. I have three balls; one is green, another is blue, and the other is white.

4. I have three balls. One is green, another is blue, and the other is white.

(Is #3 or #4 the same as #1? Would you check the punctuation marks? Are the three expressions all grammatical?)

===============================
1. I have three balls: one is green, another is blue, and the other is white.

1-1. I have three balls: One is green, another is blue, and the other is white.


2. I have three balls: one is green, a second is blue, and the third is white.
2-1. I have three balls: One is green, a second is blue, and the third is white.
(Which one is corect, 'one' or 'One'? Do we have to capitalize 'one' after 'colon' in this case?)

  1. Because the words following the colon make a complete sentence, "One" is correct.

    (If the words following the sentence are not a sentence, then "one" would be correct, such as this -- I have three balls: green, blue, and white.)
