tlcerta, Sorry but the quiz is not poorly written and both of your comments are in error. See my post below for an explanation of the preposition issue and the use of “capitol” is for the building only. If you wish to refer to Washington DC or the capital of any state, CAPITAL is the correct word. For example: “ the national Capitol building is located in our national Capital of Washington D.C.” By the same rule, any state Capital is a reference to the city whereas any state Capitol is a reference to the building. The easy way to remember the difference is to think of the “O” in Capitol as resembling the dome on all Capitol buildings.

Lilian Ling, The key word is “never”. Virtually all rules, including grammar rules, have reasonable exceptions. In this case, the general rule is appropriate for any formal usage such as a research paper or anything written for publication. The exception is for any informal or casual communication e.g. an e mail, text or letter to friends or family or a casual note of any kind. Think about it: would you really say or write or text the following...”up with which I will not put” in order to avoid the common and perfectly acceptable “...put up with”? I doubt it.
