I am confused how I should treat capitalisation in the following cases:

Example 1

Include the following themes in your writing:

  • respect, e.g. students must respect their teachers.

Q1: Should "students" start with a capital letter (note it is a complete sentence).

Example 2

There are many types of punctuations:

  • full stop ends a sentence, e.g. the dog belongs to my neighbour.

Q2: Should "the" start with a capital letter (note it is a complete sentence).

Finally,

Q3: Should the list start with a capital letter (e.g. Respect or Full stop) and end with a full stop.

    Q3 is a duplicate, please follow the link. Q1 and Q2 are general reference (Q1: no, you do not capitalize random words in the middle of a sentence, Q2: yes, the whole example sentence should be in quotes and the the should be capitalized). Stack Exchange works best when you limit your questions to one question per question, and when you search the site before asking. Thank you.

  • Agree with Reg. The first word is always capitalised and afterwords only special words. "Respect, e.g. students must respect their teachers."
