    Grade 10 Grammar Lesson 36 Reporting questions (1)
  •  We may report what someone asked using ask/want to know/enquire as the verb in the reporting clause. The reported clause begins in if/whether in case of Yes/No questions
  •  In the case of wh– questions, the wh-word is retained in the reported speech. The question form( verb + subject.?) changes to statement form(subject + verb..) in indirect speech.
