Examples of when to use a colon:
My question is this: When did you go?
These were the three items I brought: an apple, an orange, and a banana.
I'm going to read the following passage from your deposition:
Question: "What time did you get there?"
Answer: "I got there at 8:30, but we left soon after
and came in an hour or two later. So we really didn't
get there till midnight."
