Embedded Questions (1)

 

“Embedded questions” are questions that are inside another sentence or another question.

 

 

Here are two questions:
Where is Brian?
What are they doing?

When these questions are inside another sentence, you change them:
I don’t know where Brian is.
I’m not sure what they are doing.
(Because you are not asking the question, you have to change the order of the words.)


Look at the questions below, and rewrite them as embedded questions.
