When is it appropriate to use an ampersand “&” instead of the word “and”?
[A] Ampersands should be used anywhere the letter pair “et” exist. &ymology instead of etymology.
[B] Ampersands should be avoided unless they are part of a company name or a commonly used abbreviation (R&D)
[C] The ampersand should never be used. It’s punctuation and doesn’t belong in most contexts.
[D] The decision to use “and” or “&” is a matter of personal habit.
