Which sentence is correct if I add a "wh question" after I said "I'd like to ask...".

For example:

or

I'd like to ask how much is product A expensive than product B.


I'd like to ask how much these words overlap each other.

or

I'd like to ask how much do these words overlap each other.


I'd like to ask how different these words are

or

I'd like to ask how are these words different

  • It's a little unclear what you are asking. Are you asking differences of degree? Are you asking if your syntax is correct? – Peter Feb 9 '16 at 1:16

You can ask a question indirectly by putting it into a subordinate clause beginning either with "if/whether" or a question word.There's no inversion in the sub clause.

I'd like to know how different these word are.

I'd like to ask by how much these words overlap each other.

I'd like to ask by how much A is more expensive than B.
