    Red face Is there any difference in meaning between the sentences?

    Do the following two sentences mean the same?

    1- If you find her, ask her "why did you do it?".

    2- If you find her, ask her why she did it.

    They are two different ways of describing the same situation, yes.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
