    indirect question

    Hello,

    should I use an indirect question after the phrase: "I would like to know..."? For example:
    Firstly, I would like to know what the level of competition for very young children is?

    Thank you for your help.

    Re: indirect question

    'I would like to know...' is not a question, but the start of an indirect question, so it doesn't take a question mark.

    'I would like to know what the level of competition for very young children is.'
