Question Mark

Use the question mark:

1. At the end of all direct questions

  • What is your name?
  • Do you speak Italian?
  • You’re Spanish, aren’t you?

2. Do not use the question mark for reported questions

  • He asked me what my name was.
  • She asked if I was Spanish.
  • Ask them where they are going.

General notes:

1. Don’t forget to place a question mark at the end of long sentences that contain a question

  • Isn’t it true that global warming is responsible for more and more problems which are having a disastrous effect on the world’s climate and leading to many millions of people in countries that can least afford it having to contend with more and more hardship?

2. Sometimes a question mark can be placed within a sentence

  • There is cause for concern – isn’t there? – that the current world economic balance is so fragile that it may lead to a global economic downturn.
