    what

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-What you are doing is important.
    2-It is important what you are doing.

    3-Which books are studied in the course is important.
    4-It is important which books are studied in the course.

    5-Who said those words is important.
    6-It is important who said those words.

    6-It is important who said those words.
    I would say that all 6 are correct. For some reason, #2 is a bit strange for me, but it follows the same pattern as #4 and #6. Hmmm.

    :?
