In my sentence I typed, "I did not have a clue what to expect," and the computer said that it was not proper grammar. Should it be, "I did not have a clue of what to expect?"

>> sorry for all the questions this is part of a final and we didn't do any proof reading or drafting in class.

    The phrasing "have a clue" is slang. Your sentence will be better if you write more formally.

    I did not know what to expect.
