how do i write this sentence or paragraph ?

See example:

The word antibiotic may have been first used in 1942 by Selman Waksman and partners in journal articles to describe any substance that was antagonistic to the growth of other organisms in high dilution.[2] Anti -biotic are classified into bactericidal antibiotics that kill the bacteria directly and bacteriostatic antibiotics which inhibits them from growing .[3]

"how do i write this sentence or paragraph ?"


Every sentence starts with a capital letter.

The word "I" is always capitalized.

The final punctution of a sentence immediately follows the last word.  There is no space between the word and the punctuation.


There are no exceptions to these rules.


In your last sentence, I don't know why you added a space an hypen in antibiotic.  You need to make the word plural.  Antibiotics are, not antibiotic are.  They are not classified into this and that.  They are classified as either this or that.
