While I was asking a question in this forum, I got some comments on the English of my questions. Though I could understand all of the corrections, it is not true for the following sentence.


My sentence:-

Please let me know what is the for this usage.


The corrected sentence:-

Please let me know what is the reason what the reason is for this usage.


Therefore, I would really appreciate it if someone could explain the reason for this.

Here are two posts on indirect questions (embedded questions) which may help.

Embedded Questions
Question in indirect question

There are several topics that need to be understood in order for all of this to fall into place.

Direct questions.
......... Yes-no questions vs wh questions

......... Subject-verb inversion
......... When to add a form of do before inverting
......... What to do when questioning the subject

Indirect questions. (= Embedded questions)
......... What contexts indirect questions occur in
................... in declaratives, e.g., I don't know + indirect question+.
................... in interrogatives, e.g., Do you know + indirect question+?
.......... No subject-verb inversion
.......... Indirect yes-no questions (use of whether and if)

.......... What to do when questioning the subject
.......... What to do when the question is very long

Ask here if you need more help.
