    Default What was every person aware of?

    Hi teachers.
    According to this sentence:
    Felix said, 'Dinon went to prison because he murdered the old President. Everybody knows that.'
    Are the question and answer correct?
    According to Felix, what was every person aware of?
    They were aware of that Dinon went to prison because he murdered the old President.

    Thanks in advance.

    Delete the "of" and your answer will be correct.

    They were aware of the fact that Dinon went to prison because he murdered the old President. Alternative to JMurray's suggestion, with two extra words.

    Thanks in advance.

    See above.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
