...the same questions all over again: what’s your name?...


Senior Member

It prevents you from asking a reporter the same questions all over again: what’s your name? What’s your telephone number? What's your address?

How to punctuate this sentence? I mean should I start with uppercase after colon? should I put these 3 questions under one sentence and put only one questions mark in the end?

    There is no rule about whether to cap a clause, phrase or sentence that is preceded by a colon, but in this example, I certainly would. I'd write it just the way you have except for capitalizing the "w" in "What's your name?"
