comma always inside quotes

0

Student is writing a sentence with the following.....

 

The following books are, "Example 1" by John Smith, "Example 2" by Mary Tell, and "Example 3" by Steve Key.

 

In this sentence the teacher gave specific parameters to place the titles in quotes. I am just not sure if a comma needs to go inside the closing quotation mark on each.

No comma is needed inside the close quotes. You don't need the comma after 'are', either. If the list of books was long, you could separate the list with a colon after 'are', but it's not needed with just three items.

 

The following books are "Example 1" by John Smith, "Example 2" by Mary Tell, and "Example 3" by Steve Key.
