#EngQuiz: Noun Clause from Question Word

​Hi fellas, how was your weekend? I went to my friend’s wedding and had fun there..

Today we will talk about noun clause from question word, also called embedded question.

The noun clause comes after the main verb in the sentence.

Do not use question word order in a noun clause, use question word + subject + verb order and keep the same tense.

For the question without subject ( the subject is question word), the word order is the same in both question and the noun clause.

Do, does, and did are used in the questions but not in noun clauses.

E.g. *Where does she lives? I don’t know where she lives.

* Which road should I take? I wonder which road I should take.

* Whose pen is this? Do you know whose pen is this?
Why don’t you try some exercises

1. What did he say? I couldn’t hear …

2. When do they arrive? Do you know … ?

3. Who lives there? I don’t know …

4. What happened? Please tell me …

5. What was he talking about? … was interesting.

6. How old is he? I don’t know …

7. Whose house is that? I wonder …

8. Whose pen is this? Do you know … ?
