"I admit that I don't know what the truth about it is" is the idiomatic expression. The other is awkward.
Student or Learner
Hi
I admit that I don't know what is the truth about it.
I admit that I don't know what the truth about it is.
---Which one is correct?
"I admit that I don't know what the truth about it is" is the idiomatic expression. The other is awkward.
Thanks for the answer. I always have problems with it, because as far as I know "is" is not always placed at the end of a sentence even when it's an affirmative sentence.
I can't think of any examples now, but I'm sure there are such cases.
Hi
Good example.
So why not: ...what wrong with this sentence is.
The truth in that clause is the subject:
I do not know this - this stands for the object of know
this = what the truth is - the object
What is the truth? - what is the object
The truth is what? - the truth is the subject, what is the object
The truth is this. - the truth is the subject, this is the object
