In a direct question we put the auxiliary verb before the subject. In an indirect question we put the auxiliary verb after the subject.
- Why doesn’t she listen to me?
(direct question – auxiliary verb/doesn’t – subject/she)
- I wonder why she doesn’t listen to me. (Indirect question)
(indirect question – subject/she – auxiliary verb/doesn’t)
- What does she mean?
- I can’t figure out what she means.
We don’t often use a question mark after an indirect question.
