    Question Quotes and sentence structure

    Hello,

    Which is correct, and why?

    The children asked questions like, "What did they wear to the party?" and "How long did they dance?"

    or, close this sentence with a period -

    The children asked questions like, "What did they wear to the party?" and "How long did they dance?".

    Thank you!

    Re: Quotes and sentence structure

    The second one as the question mark is relating to the quotation and the statement containing the quotations needs its own terminating mark.
