A question mark is always placed at the end of a question.

Do remember it. So many people forget to include it. If you

have used a question mark, you do not require a full stop as

well.

Where are you?

It’s not raining, is it?

If you are reporting a question that someone else has said,

you do not need a question mark.

‘Do you have change for a pound?’ she asked.

Notice that the question mark goes inside the inverted com-

Single words that ask a question are also followed by a

question mark.

How? Why? When? Where? Who? What?
