GRAMMAR

GRAMMAR SECTION: INDIRECT QUESTIONS

Indirect questions have two active verb clauses, the first is organised like a question (verb + subject) and the second is organised like normal sentence (subject +verb) but both can begin with question words.

 

 

Do you know the person who I saw in the street?

Can you remember where Liz parked the car?

Where is the friend Rebecca told you about yesterday?

 

 

Remember that the second clause has the subject before the verb including when it is after a question word.

 

 

Do you know where the post office is?

Can you tell me who he is?

Could you tell him how old you are?

    I think that after the explanations and the examples there should be some exercise to check if we have understood it correctly.
    Thank you very much
