    Could you correct this question?

    Hi teachers,
    If the answer is 'Alex stared at Marta and said nothing', would 'What did Alex do before Marta laughed?' be an appropriate question?

    Context:
    Alex stared at Marta and said nothing.
    Marta laughed. ‘It’s all right,’ she said. ‘I’m not afraid of the President’s murderer. You can stay here tonight, Alex Dinon, and have a good sleep.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, that would be a suitable question.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
