All Nouns are capitalized in German

Why is Sie ans Es capitalized but er not?

The first word in any sentence (after a period ".") is capitalized. After a semicolon (";"), it is only capitalized if it's a noun. Some of the sentences in this lesson are "The man plays. He plays." some are "The man plays; he plays." - you just have to watch out for the punctuation!

it seemed to me that the question was giving you the option to answer one of possibilities. You have to translate both!
