In a secondary school exam, I found this question
The Princess came into the room and I bowed down to her. "It seems you've tricked me," she said, but not unkindly. "I would like to apologise to you for this," I said. "You don't need to apologise. I should thank you for all you've done for Ruritania," she said. "I've learned all about duties and responsibilities," I said to her. "It's a lesson I'll never forget." "And we'll never forget how you've helped the King," she replied. The King smiled, then closed his eyes and fell asleep, and the doctor said it was best if I left him.
Q "It seems you've tricked me" What trick was the speaker thought to play?
I think the question reversed the situation and isn't grammatically correct as well, is it? If it is not correct, how shall it look like? Would it be grammatically correct if we said
What trick did the speaker think to have been played?
Thanks in advance
