    Re: Report these questions please

    What do you mean, "report" the questions?

    Do you mean turn them into reported speech?

    1) "When are you coming back?"

    He asked (me) when I was coming back.

    2) "Do you hear me clearly?"

    He wanted to know whether I heard him clearly/if I could hear him clearly.

    Alternatively, since you don't know whether the questioner was male or female: I was asked when I was coming back and I was asked whether I was able to hear clearly.
