    Default 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

    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]?
