An indirect question is something that requires an answer like a question, but is not phrased as one:
I was wondering whether you would like to come with us tonight.
The actual qeustion is 'Would you like to come with us tonight?', but it has been rephrased in such a way that it doesn't require a question mark at the end, though the listener would be expected to answer yes or no in the same way.
