    As with many other punctuation marks, the uses of colon vary among languages and, for a given language, among historical periods. As a rule, however, a colon informs the reader that what follows proves, clarifies, explains, or simply lists items in what is referred to before.
    Here is a way to use a colon, e.g.
    Rule1. Avoid using a colon before a list when it directly follows a verb or preposition.
    Incorrect: I want: butter, sugar, and flour.
    Correct: 
I want the following: butter, sugar, and flour. Or I want butter, sugar, and flour.
    Incorrect: I’ve seen the greats, including: Barrymore, Guinness, and Strep.
    Correct: I’ve seen the greats, including Barrymore, Guinness, and Strep.
    Also for a definition.
    Ball: a round surfers that can bounce if u through it.
