I don't know which one of the next sentences are correct. Please, help me to find out. I also will be appreciated if you'll explain which rules we use here. Where I should to put the "is"?

A) I forgot, how hard is it - to be a policeman.
B) I forgot, how is hard it - to be a policeman.
C) I forgot, how hard it - to be a policeman is.
D) I forgot, how hard it is - to be a policeman

I think, A is a correct answer.

Alright, since you want to emphasize that you forgot how hard being a policeman is, right answer is D

I forgot, how hard it is - to be a policeman

Why so? Sentence A sounds like a question. How hard is it to be a policeman sounds like a question you would ask someone.

Here you don't want to ask a question. You want to mention a fact and you also want to tell that you forgot that particular fact. Options B and C are structurally wrong and don't lead to anywhere. Only option left now is D!

I forgot, how hard it is - to be a policeman, is the right answer!
