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
Iamwhoam
