I saw a test in one of the web sites but couldn't make head of that. I think there is something wrong with the test.
This is the test:
2. What punctuation mark needs to be added to the following sentence in DIRECT speech
James asked "Are you coming to my house today?"
Source: Direct and Indirect Speech Quiz

Would you please clarify it to me?
And the modern trend is to have no punctuation after 'asked'.
It's my name.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
