    Question puntuation for question within sentence

    Some people like to compare everything, like "who throws a bigger party?", "who has a better car?".

    "I mean why the hell do you care?"



    Is there anything that wrong puntuation-wise? Do I need the quotation marks?

    Curiousone,


    (1) Some people like to compare everything,

    like/such as "Who throws a bigger party?"

    or "Who has a better car?" (You do not need a period. The question

    mark is enough.)


    (2) I do not think that it needs any quotation marks:

    [What] I mean [is] why [in]the hell do you care?


    THANK YOU
