Question Mark

A question mark (?) is used at the end of a direct question.


Is that Paul?
I heard her shout: "Are you going to the cinema?"
(Note: In this example, the question mark is at the end of the quotation, which is a question.  The whole sentence is a statement.  However, for neatness, there is no need to use a full stop (period ) at the end.)
