I have doubt on semicolon and comma usage, should I swap their positions? Or should I put colon instead of semicolon?
Out of the major expenses incurred by the company, raw materials accounted for 46 percent of the total income, employee cost; nine percent, power and fuel; two percent, advertisement; one percent, interest; four percent, depreciation; four percent, tax; two percent, dividend; two percent and other expenses 20 percent.
I have a doubt about the way semicolon is used, for example:
employee cost; nine percent
I have used a 'comma' after nine percent and before 'power and fuel'. I have separated 'employee cost' 'power and fuel cost' and 'advertisement' cost with comma – am I correct in separating the content by comma and using the semicolon for depicting the percentage?
