Hi guys !!!

Well, I 've got a problem and I was wondering if someone can help me !!! I know that perhaps it is not the right place to ask for help but I didn't find any other better !!!

I'd like to know which question is correct between these above!!

I know that it may seem strange but I 'm getting confused with them !! Please !!!! Can anyone help me ??

Thanks and bye bye !!

Hello. Here's the answer to your question.

The answer is Which was the strangest thing you have eaten?

EXPLANATION

When we ask a question, we often say Do you know...? / Could you tell me...? etc. If you begin a question like this, word order is different from a simple question.

Compare:

Where has Tom gone? (simple question)

but Do you know where Tom has gone? (not Do you know where has Tom gone?)

When the question is part of a longer sentence, it loses the normal word order.

Don't be afraid to ask if you don't know which to use. Hope my answer is sufficient.

HAve a nice day! :D
