Report these questions please:

1) "When are you coming back?"

2) "Do you hear me clearly?"

Thanks in advance :)

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.

:-D

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.
