What is the positive statement of the question "Whose frying pan is this?"

I mean How can I transform from question to the positive statement. What would it look like? I hope I explain myself understandably.

    Do you mean that you want to transform it into a sentence like "I wonder who is the owner of this frying pan"? That is, into a sentence without the question sign? Sep 16, 2015 at 17:11

I believe such a statement is called "declarative", not "positive" (that is, it could be negative too, and still declarative).

CopperKettle's example

I wonder who is the owner of this frying pan.

is of course fine, and a more strict example would be

I want to know whose frying pan this is.

Note the change in the order between "this" and "is".
