    Should end with (.) or (?)

    Dear Sir/Madam

    Please tell me whether the sentences " The question is who is responsible for this" and " The answer is who is responsible for this" should end with (.) or (?).



    Thanks

    Re: Should end with (.) or (?)

    Both of them are declarative statements rather than questions. Therefore they should end with . rather than ? , in other words with a full stop (BrE) or a period as we say in (AmE).
