Essentially, you are changing the question into a statement (with the exception of example number four). Instead of asking the each example in the form of a question, one can manipulate the structure of the sentence to form a statement. Also, in the question, the sentences can be separated into two sentences. For example, "What are you doing? Sara wants to know." By combining the sentences, one can vary the sentence structure and create statements instead of questions.

Here are the sentences using a noun clause.

1. Sara wants to know what you are doing.

2. Please tell me where you live.

3. I do know whose book this is.

4. Do you know why did they leave early?

5. I am not sure who is the president of France.
