    Default How to handle

    Hi,
    I am in confusion

    "Can you please let me know how can I handle this?"
    "Can you please let me know how I can handle this?"

    What is the basic difference between these two sentences.

    Thanks.

    #2 is correct.

    A direct question would be 'How can I handle this?'

    In an indirect question like this, we reverse the subject and verb.
