what puncuating should i use in this phrase
I dont know how to puncuate this
If they are "dumb" then they automatically have ADHD.
You need a comma after the introductory conditional phrase. The phrase ends with "dumb" in quotation marks, so you must decide whether to put the comma inside or outside the quote. US English calls for the punctuation to be always inside the quote. British English bases the position on logic.
If they are "dumb," then they automatically have ADHD.
In British English, I would put the comma outside of the quote.
