    Ending a sentence with no direct object and a question mark

    How do I end a sentence without a direct object and a question mark? For example, I want to write: If some is good, more is...?
    You see, I want to leave the last word ambiguous. That is the title of my story and what follows is how more isn't better. However, I'm not sure if I should put the question mark immediatly following the word 'is' or if I should add the "..." as I've shown in my example. What is your opinion?

    Thank you for your time and help. I appreciate it.

    Jennifer

    Welcome to the forums, Jennifer.

    I would include the ellipsis ('...'), though the missing word is not a direct object, but a complement.
