Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Sample sentences:

1. I don't see what the point in talking to them is. :tick:

2. I don't see what is the point in talking to them. :tick:

3. I don't see what the point is in talking to them. :cross:

Question:

Sentences #1 and #2 are correct, whereas sentence #3 is not. Am I right?


Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

Regards,
JJXR

    I'd say sentences 1 and 3 are correct but not 2.

    Neither sounds very natural however. I'd normally expect: I don't see any point in talking to them or I don't see what point there is in talking to them.
