In one of the publice offices, a sign reads ' Keep silence'. Is it 'keep silent' or 'keep silence'?
Keep silence is correct.
I've never seen any sign in such situations except simply 'SILENCE'.
'He decided to keep silent', 'He decided to keep silence' and 'He decided to keep his silence' are all OK.
Separate names with a comma.
