How many quotation marks do I need to put to close more than one unclosed quotes at once (for example, in the end of a sentence or heading)?
In my language the only one is enough.
… “… “…”.
Not … “… “…”[color=red]”.
But what is the rule for that in (standard and proper ) English?
And the same question - for ‘nested’ (direct) speech. My [specially constructed] example is:
Maria asked him, “Stop doing that, please, it’s risky. Yesterday your father said, “I’ll throw the skateboard away if Mike continues those acrobatic exercises without any protectors.”[color=blue][size=134][?”?][/size].
