A question mark is used at the end of any sentence that is a question. So, like, in this sentence.
“Where are we?”
This is a question, so there’s a question mark at the end of the sentence.
Question marks are also used in quotations that ask a question.
So, right here, it says:
“Is dinner at 6 p.m.?”
So, there’s a question mark at the end of the quotation, because the speaker is asking a question.
Notice though that there’s not a question mark at the end of the sentence. There’s just a period. That’s because the writer of this sentence is not asking a question.
