English 10th Grade

Choose the answer that shows a correct revision to the following sentence:

Why if you did not want to hear it did you ask me what I thought

a) Why, if you did not want to hear it, did you ask me what I thought?
b) Why, if you did not want to hear it did you ask me what I thought?
c) Why, if you did not want to hear it, did you ask me what I thought.
d) Why, if you did not want to hear it did you ask me what I thought.


I think the answer is a) but it could also be b). Which is it?

  1. Yes, A is correct. It is a question, so needs the question mark at the end. A dependent clause is always set off with commas, no matter where it is in the sentence. You are right! Good work.
