    Question Do you know who is Marry?

    There was a argument with a friend of mine. My friend told me that "B" was incorrect. My opinion is correct both sentences.

    Of course Two sentences' mean is a little different.

    Which sentence is grammatically correct?

    A. Do you know who Mary is?
    B. Do you know who is Mary?

    Please tell me.

    Re: Do you know who is Marry?

    B is incorrect. A uses the correct construction for a question. However, both sentences should use "Mary" (a girl's name), not "marry" (a verb meaning "to wed").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
