Which statement is more appropriate?
- Is that what really am?
- Is that what I really am?
And instead of "what", can I use "how" and have the same meaning?
The person saying the statement thinks of himself as something like a coward, then he questions himself. I was thinking "Is that what I really am?" was more appropriate because "am" is always used with "I" but I'm not sure. "Is that what really am?" sounds fine to me too.
