Interrogative Sentences | Examples | Direct & Indirect Speech | English Grammar

Hello and welcome to the next session of narration in which we are going to cover today, interrogative sentences in which we are not going to discuss some basic rules and some examples as well. So that's, it started. If you look closely, we will find that there are two types of interrogative sentences. No first is questions that can be simply answered in yes, or no. And these questions start with auxiliary verbs like he said, are you coming to concert? Okay? So there's a delivery verb are and one more type.Elsewhere, the question that demands our detailed answer.

And these questions start with WH words, what does mean WH hair? It means like what where when why and how for example, she said, what is the rule for the next concert here? We are going to discuss both the one which are starting with auxiliary verbs. And the next one, which is starting with the WH words. But before this we are going to discuss something about reporting work how we are going to change reporting verb in this entire gate of sentences. Like work in the reporting verb it's changed into either ask or asked or inquire or inquired, what, or you can say wanted to know demand or demanded and one more wonder or wonder, but the most prevalent are either you will choose ask or inquired. For example, mother said to daughter, have you completed your homework mother asked daughter, as you can see I have converted this set into ask - mother asked daughter if she had completed her home buck and the portion of the tents we have already covered in.

Our earlier video so let's get to the new slide. So first we are going to discuss yes/no type questions. And in this yes/no type answer type questions if or whether they will be used in place of inverted commas, make a note over here, let's practice with some examples that is a direct speech. So one said to me are you interested in this offer then we'll convert it into indirect? One? Then sum asked me if I was interested in that offer. Similarly, the teacher said to me do, you know, the answer the.

Teacher asked me if all you can choose whether both are correct, if I knew the answer and one more example of WH question now, in the sentences, which are beginning with the question words, inverted commas are replaced by the question word itself, like if we are encountering who then we will use who is it is when then it would be. Then if it is what then it would be, what know if or whether you will be placed instead of inverted commas here. So here's, an example before you get that to me where do you live. He asked me where I lived. So you can notice I am NOT going to change your question word in that format. Next one is mother said to me. What are you doing?

There? Mother asked me what I was doing there, I'm the rules to change the sentence. We have already covered in our earlier videos. So if you are having any doubt, please have a look at those and there's a rule. A must-see it's a clause with interrogative pronoun like question, 1, it's, followed by main clause that is used before the question and this.

Rule also applies to if and whether in yes or no answer type questions, static, my point. But if a clause with interrogative pronoun is followed by main clause, then that is used before the question word that is not going to replace in animal. Ok. And this rule is applicable to both ones either if it will be yes, or no or your question wider. So let's have a look at the example. She said to me when she will come is not certain.

She told me that when she would come was not certain I'm putting that before. Your question word here, similarly, I said to him, whether she will pass is not certain I told him that whether she would pass was not 13. Insertion of that is applicable to both the rules, which we have covered in an earlier slide. Now, practice this interrogator sentences.

Well, we are presenting you. Some more examples here is the first one father said, do, you know we have got another opportunity here. You can see this question belongs to you, yes or no type, so I'm going to insert either if or whether so. Father asked son if he knew they had got another opportunity like this I said to him, do you know how to speak English again, this belongs to yes or no type I asked him whether he knew how to speak English next. She said to beggar, why are you begging all the time here she asked better?

Why he had been begging all the time there? As you can notice here has been converted into there. One more example, the traveler said, do you know? Well does this road lead young man? The traveler asked young man, whether he.

Knew where did that road lead make a note I am putting your question word in fact, over here. And this has been converted into that. Next is shopkeeper said, do you need more Alex? Shopkeeper asked Alex whether he required more again. This is belonged. This belongs to your. He has no type question, so I'm, putting whether here you can also use if here is you want so that's all about your interrogative sentences and to go through your tenses rules and your pronounce, please have a look at our earlier videos.

Till then stay happy, stay healthy and stay connected. Thank you so much.
