In sentences like:

  • Also, it provides ...
  • Also, It provides ...

is it allowed to place It (with a capital I) instead of it after the adverb Also?

And it has nothing to do with using an adverb. It also has nothing to do with using the word "also". Simply, if the word is not at the very beginning of the sentence (and is not a proper noun), it should not be capitalized. Since "it" is neither the first word in your sentence, nor a proper noun, "it" should be lowercase.

    I counts as a proper noun. – Andrew Leach Dec 12 '14 at 12:42

    I suppose I is a proper pronoun. Here's some background on it: blog.dictionary.com/whycapitali . I didn't include all capitalization rules because I was trying to keep the answer simple for the questioner. Given her question, sticking to absolute basics seemed appropriate. – Raj Dec 12 '14 at 12:47

    ‘If we accept the axiom that trivial questions are bad for the site, then the proper response to a general reference question is: 1.Don't answer! 2… [Vote] to close. The point is not to encourage trivial questions. If you post an answer or vote up an existing answer, you're implicitly encouraging more questions like it.’ –Martha – Edwin Ashworth Dec 12 '14 at 16:13
