olivia is my friend.

CORRECT ANSWER

There are two reasons 'Olivia' should have a capital letter in this sentence. The first is it is the first word in the sentence and the second is that it is a name. All names of people and places should have capital letters no matter where they come in a sentence.

Are you getting the hang of this now? 'My' should have a capital letter as it is the first letter of the first word in the sentence. Don't forget the full stop at the end to show the sentence has finished.
