    Question Questions and change of word order

    Dear teachers,

    I was watching news on TV with English subtitles.
    I think that there are some grammatical mistakes in the subtitles, so
    I posted them here.
    Which of the following sentences from groups 1 and 2
    are the most appropriate, teachers?

    1. A
    Does anyone know what are the format and form of content of these examination?
    1. B
    Does anyone know what the format and form of content of these examination are?
    1. C
    Does anyone know what the format and the form of content of these examination are?

    2. A
    You are under arrested.
    2. B
    You are under arrest.

    Thank you.

    Kitty
