    C.

    A period, or full stop, is used only at the end of a sentence.

    If you try to use it internally, you’ve just ended the sentence.

    In regards to bella’s Answer, quotation marks are incorrectly used inside a sentence. They are not truly used as a part of the sentence but simply put as reference points. One could even safely say what is in quotations can either be alone or put between slashes. Her first example was only using quotations as a means to describe the man. Implying it wasn’t a man. In her second example, quotations were an unnecessary addition. So to answer the original question. Quotation marks are not meant to be used internally in a sentence.

    The precise meaning of full stop (as we call them) is to terminate a sentence. Old fashioned usage to denote an abbreviation by use of a period is declining, but could technically occur elsewhere.

    Quotation marks, comma and apostrophes can occur anywhere in a sentence.

    All of them are used.

    Examples:

    Quotation - A "man" came to the door?

    Apostrophe - You don't like me.

    Period - Did you tell Dr. Smith about the pain you're having?

    Comma - Well, I would've said "hello" to the man from the F.B.I.
