And i need to find the words which start with capital letters A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K in the column 3 (the first word of this column is "Pavardenis") . Not in all columns but just in the third column (as I said earlier the first word of this column is "Pavardenis"). And i must use only GREP command (I cannot use awk or other commands due to my school restrictions).
