    Hi,

    In my opinion none of them. The use of the word 'right' is ugly. It may be heard in speech since the raising of the voice on the word right can imply a question, but that doesn't mean it's good English, written or otherwise

    If you want to ask a question then ask one. Don't dress it up as a statement. So just say

    Are you the head of this project?

    Regards

    I do agree with you in opinion. However, my concern was regarding the use of head; Is it correct or not?

    You may say either, "Are you the head of this project", or "Are you heading this project"
