DOUBLE QUESTIONS (Do you know where...?)
When we ask people for information, we sometimes begin our question with Do you know…? Or Could you tell me…? . If you begin a question like this, theword order is different from a simple question:
Compare: Where has Tom gone? (Simple question)
Do you know where Tom has gone?
When thequestion (Where has Tom gone?) is part of bigger sentence (Do you know….), it loses the normal question word order. Compare
- When will Ann arrive? Have you any idea when Ann will arrive?
-What time is it? Could you tell me what time it is?
- Why are you laughing? Tell us why you are laughing.
Be careful with do/ does/ did questions:
- When does the filmbegin? Do you know when the film begins?
- Why did Ann leave early? I wonder why Ann left early.
Use if or whether where there is no other question word:
- Did he see you? Doyou know if (or whether) he saw you?
Where is the post office? - Could you tell me… where the post office is?
- Can you tellme …?
- Do you know…?
- Can you remember…?
- Have youany idea…?
- Did you hear….?
- Do you think…?
-I want to know… (affirmative)
- I wonder… (affirmative)
