    Hi, in reported questions, we have to invert the word order. As it is no longer a question, the subject goes before the verb.

    See these examples:

    What is your name? - She asked me what my name was.

    Where are your gloves? - He asked me where my gloves were.

    What did you watch? - They asked me what I watched.

    I'll leave a link to a more detailed explanation, there are some exercises to practise, as well:
