Hello guys,

Do you identify any mistakes? Microsoft Word keeps insisting that there's a grammatical mistake with "raised"

"Ask students with their hand raised what kind of doctor do they want to become"

For context, before that sentence we asked the students to raise their hand if they want to be a doctor.

Regards.

    I don't see a problem with "raised."
    If these are abbreviated instructions and the students' hands are still in the air, then
    Ask students with their hand raised what kind of doctors do they want to become is fine.
    However, if they're not abbreviated instructions, I would prefer:
    Ask the students with their hand raised...(if their hands are still in the air) or
    Ask the students who raised their hand...

    Ask students with their hand raised what kind of doctor do they want to become.

    That sentence is not a question.

    Ask students with their hand raised "What kind of doctor do you want to become?"

    There's no problem with "raised".
