# If you are quoting a question in a statement, do you put a question mark after the quote?

Mar 11, 2018

Put the question mark within the quotation marks.

#### Explanation:

If you are quoting a question, then the question mark goes within the quotation marks (otherwise it would look like you are questioning the statement).

Examples:
"What does this mean"? - this shows you maybe questioning the statement.

"What does this mean?" - this shows that this is part of the quotation.
