    Which one do you think is correct?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Right?
    You are correct. In a real question we invert the subject and verb. Number 2 is not a real question.

    Where are you from?
    Tell me where you are from
