    Question mark

    "My question is whether I may apply once again."

    It would be wrong to put a question mark at the end of that sentence, right?

    Thanks!

    Re: Question mark

    Bhaisahab is correct (of course!).

    If you wanted to use a question mark, you would need to do something like this:

    My question is, "May I apply once again?"
