    word order

    Hi,

    I would like to know if both sentences are correct:

    Where will be their next presentation?
    Where will their next presentation be?

    Thank you for helping me,

    Mia

    Re: word order

    Hi

    The first question is wrong, the second is correct.

    There should be the following order of words:

    Question word [WHERE] + Auxiliary verb [WILL] + Subject [THEIR NEXT PRESENTATION] + verb [BE]?
