    Unhappy correct answer

    Which above sentence is correct? It is better to explain it in grammatical terms.

    Re: correct answer

    2 is correct- it's an indirect question because you are tellling me about the question and don't expect me to answer it.

    Re: correct answer

    Number 1 is also correct (and is also an indirect question).
