    what you re doing/what are you doing

    "What you are doing is so disgusting."

    OR

    "What are you doing is so disgusting."

    If it is not meant to be a question, I think that the first sentence is correct and the second is not. Am I wrong? I know that this is very basic, but I am confused what I have recently heard from my native english speaking roommate. He sometimes use the second sentence I have written above.


    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    The first sentence is the only correct one.
    A native speaker would not say 2.
    He might have said "What are you doing? It's so disgusting!"
    Why don't you ask him?
