    Regarding syntax of the sentence

    Friends, this question is about sentence structure which I'm unable to make. Need your help so that I can reply to my friend. The context is this: I asked something to my friend and he didn't reply to me for a long time - for 5 days. I wanna say something like this (e.g is from next para) but not sure about the syntax of the sentence.


    Sentence: "What meaning should I draw from your silence" or "What does your silence mean"


    Are both of these sentence correct both grammatically and syntactical ?


    Thanks
