Indirect questions: ob (2)

„Haben Sie Erfahrungen im Service?“
Frau Jansen fragt Ibrahim, ob er Erfahrungen im Service hat.

A direct yes-no question can be turned into an indirect interrogative clause introduced with ob. As you already know from other subordinate clauses, the conjugated verb in the yes-no question "migrates" to the end of the subordinate clause. Be careful: in the indirect question, the perspective is often switched, affecting the person or personal pronoun.

„Sind Sie zeitlich flexibel?“
Frau Jansen fragt Ibrahim, ob er zeitlich flexibel ist.
Frau Jansen möchte wissen, ob Ibrahim zeitlich flexibel ist.
