Learn English – How to correct this sentence? “I’m curious what you think the percentage is.”

prepositions

I've been told not to end a sentence with a preposition, but I'm not sure how to correct this sentence:

I’m curious what you think the percentage is.

I don't like the "is" at the end of the sentence. Would the following be better?

I'm curious what you think is the percentage.

Best Answer

The corrected sentence reads:

"I am curious as to what you think the percentage is."

Ending with a preposition is not a hard and fast rule.
