You realize, don't you, that there is not a single question in your entire post. Are you just announcing this to everyone? Or do you have a question? Emotion: smile

Isn't this a question?
What is also Deborah?
She is also a very good cook and swimmer.
It is from this part of text.
Deborah, Arthur's wife, plays the piano and sings very well. She is also a very good cook and swimmer.
Am I that wrong?Emotion: sad
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thinking SpainIsn't this a question?
What is also Deborah?
Yes, but you misunderstand me! You presented many questions and answers, but you did not ask anything about them. I expected a question about the questions you presented.

For this question and answer:
What is also Deborah?
She is also a very good cook and swimmer.

The indirect question should be: << You say what the indirect question should be. You don't ask, "Is this what the indirect question should be?" Or more likely, you want to ask, "Which of the following is the correct way to instruct someone to produce the answers shown above?"Emotion: smile

a) Ask and and answer what Deborah is also.
b) Ask and answer what is also Deborah.

First of all, you aren't using "also" correctly. You need these:

What else is Deborah?
She is also a very good cook and swimmer.

The indirect form you're looking for is:

Ask what else Deborah is, and (then) give the answer.

P.S. It is only now, after all this, that I realize what your heading means! You headed the thread "Sentence order". You were expecting us to figure out that you were asking about the wordorder for "also" in those sentences! I didn't even know that that was your question! Please try to be more direct! Emotion: smile
So sorry. I really am. I feel so embarrassed.Emotion: sweating
But your explanation is excellent, huge, and perfect CalifJim. I will not make this mistake again. At least it is my firm intention.

Is this direction completely wrong?

Ask and answer what else Deborah is.
Because I've got it for many exercises.

Thinking SpainIs this direction completely wrong?

Ask and answer what else Deborah is.
No. Not at all. That's another way to say the same thing.

CJ
Thinking SpainSo sorry. I really am. I feel so embarrassed.
No, no, no! Don't feel like that. You don't have to feel that you have to be perfect! Emotion: smile
