    Could it be the answer to 'What does Deborah think about his driving?

    Hi teachers,
    According to the following paragraph:
    Even though Arthur drives more carefully than he did when he was younger, he is still driving too fast according to Deborah.

    Could the underlined sentence be the answer to 'What does Deborah think about his driving?'

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I would leave it at "She thinks Arthur drives too fast". The rest, I would leave for further clarifications, if needed.

    Hi,

    It could be, if the listener is aware of the background information (namely "Even though Arthur drives more carefully than he did when he was younger..."

    It's not very likely if the question is simply, " 'What does Deborah think about his driving?"

    Wouldn't it depend on who made the question?
