Punctuation marks: Question mark (?)

A question mark is used to indicate the end of a question:

Have you seen the film yet? 

Note that you don’t use a question mark at the end of a question in reported speech:

He asked if I had seen the film yet. 

A question mark can also be used in brackets to show that the writer is unconvinced by a statement:

I’m about to get started on the new project, which is apparently quite straightforward (?).
