Names are important and special so we need to make sure we always use a capital letter for the name of anyone or anything. 'Mr' is part of someone's name so this too should have a capital. Keep it going!

This can be tricky but it is important to remember that we use capital letters for all titles. 'Dr' needs to have a capital letter as it the title of someone. It is part of their name. You can do this! Give the next question a try.
