What is a full stop?

A full stop is a punctuation mark/ symbol which is used to show the end of a sentence. It is also known as a period.

Why do we use full stop?

We use a full stop to indicate the end of a sentence. It shows us how to read a sentence when to give a pause while reading, speaking, or writing. Without a full stop, it would be very difficult to recognize where one sentence ends and the next one begins.
