question in question(grammar)
We can put a yes/no question asking what people think (1) or say (2) after the wh-word (what, who) inside a wh-question.
1. Do you think something is wrong?---> Who do you think is wrong?
2.Did he say someone was waiting outside?--> Who did he say was waiting
Who do you think is wrong?可以拆開來看
do you thing 插入了Who is wrong，但為何合起來看時就很彆扭，

1. Do you think (that) something is wrong?
上面這句是yes/no question。do you think xxx是主要結構
Who do you think is wrong?
這是在問訊息的問句，加上［插入語］do you think，表示是在強調只問聽者的個人想法。Who is wrong?是主要結構。
2.Did he say (that) someone was waiting outside?
上面也是yes/bo question。do you think xxx是主要結構。
Who did he say was waiting outside?
這是在問訊息。加上［插入語］did he say，表示在問第三者的說法。
主句是Who was waiting outside?

Who did he say Paul had killed?
Who Paul had killed?
(1)如果你想知道的是"間接問句"的答案, 就必須把主句移到疑問詞後, 才能得到合理的回答.
A: Who did he say Paul had killed?
B: He said Paul had killed a homeless old man.
如果A: Did he say who Paul had killed? 那麼B勢必要用Yes or No回答, 不合理.
A: Did he know who Paul had killed?
B: Yes, he did. / No, he didn't.
如果A: Who did he know Paul had killed? 也同樣不知所云.
