What are the direct and indirect questions regarding the grammar?
Please write at least one example for each of them.

Thanks

Do you mean an example of a question using a direct object? Here is one: "Will she buy it?" In this case "it" is the direct object. For indirect object you could ask: "Who will send me the fax?" in this case "me" is the indirect object and "fax" is the direct object.

Hello Tukanja,

The following are for your reference:

Direct questions:
Who is the person over there?
What time is it?
Will she buy it?
Mike said, "Did you see Tom yesterday?"
Mike asked, "Have you been to Taiwan?"

Indirect questions:
Tell me who the person over there is.
Do you know who the person over there is?
I don't know what time it is.
Do you know what time it is?
Tell me if she will buy it.
Mike asked whether I had seen Tom the day before.
Mike asked whether I had been to Taiwan.
