A question mark is placed at the end of a sentence that is a direct question. In most instances, **two questions become two sentences, with a question mark at the end of each sentence**.
Two Questions, One Mark
Two questions can be **rephrased** to create one sentence with one question mark. You can ask two questions: Do you want meat? Do you want fish? An alternative is: Do you want meat or fish? Another example of using one mark for two questions, from the University of Maryland Writing Center, uses a **quotation**: Did Fadumo ask, “Are we going to the Washington Monument?”
One Sentence, Many Questions
The Capital Community College Foundation offers this example of how to **combine one question with several follow-up questions** into one sentence: "Who is responsible for executing the plan? the coach? the coaching staff? the players?" Some writers, however, instead follow the rule that each follow-up question should begin with a capital letter.
