Reporting Direct Questions
When reporting questions that have a yes or no answer we use the following structure:
Subject + Reporting Verb (ASKED) + [Object] + Whether OR If + Reported question.
Let’s take a look at a couple of examples:
Original Question: “Are you going to bring anything to drink to the party tonight?”
Reported Question: He asked if I was going to bring anything to drink to the party that night.
Original Question: “Do you prefer dogs or cats?”
Reported Question: She asked us whether we preferred dogs or cats.
