Embedded questions are questions within another statement or question. They function as noun clauses and as such should generally follow statement, not question, order.

 

For example:

1.     What is he trying to tell me?  (Question Order)

2.     He is trying to tell me something.  (Statement Order)

3.     I don’t know what he is trying to tell me.  (Embedded question – following Statement Order.)

 

 

4.     How does he do that? (Question)

5.     He does that in a way nobody can tell. (Statement)

6.     I am puzzled as to how he does that. (Embeded question)
