  • English -

    really I thought when it was a complete question then the question mark goes on the outside...I thought B looked better....anyhow - thank you

  • English -

    Betsy is asking the question. Therefore, the question mark belongs before the closing quotation marks.

  • English -

    Thank you...

  • English -

    You're welcome.

    Here's an example of when the question mark would be AFTER the quotation marks:

    Did he say, "I love you"?

    This time the whole thing is a question, but the direct address (what "he" said) is a statement.
