I'm struggling to identify subjects and objects in indirect questions. Any rule of thumb to distinguish them apart?
Here is my thinking..
In the following question, which would be the subject and object?
"Could you explain what this is?
The subject of the sentence:
"you" or "this"?
Tips to help identify? Correct me if I am wrong, please.
"this" is the Subject as the answer would start with what it is.
"It" is a strange hat.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
