    Default Re: Indirect questions: Do you know vs. Do you think ?

    Upper Intermediate. There is an example in the exam similar to "Who do you think is the best person to ask about ice cream?". That example is an answer listed under the section "Rewrite the questions as indirect questions". Another way to write it would be "Do you know who is the best person to ask about ice cream?"

    Another example in the student's text book lists as an indirect question "Where do you think the best place to buy jeans is?" compare it to, "Do you know where the best place to buy jeans is?"

    Another example in the work book text answers, "Do you think that you made a good impression on him?" This question uses "that" instead of a question word, but it could easily be rendered,

    "Why do you think you made a good impression on him? vs. Do you know why you made a good impression on him?

    From the direct question Why did you make a good impression on him?

    So I'd like to know if they really are indirect questions or not. Thanks again.
