Hi Tunmi,

We tend to avoid using inversions with the first person singular, ‘je‘ as they can sound very awkward and highfalutin.

With your example I would say :

Est-ce que je plais à la reine?

Some you might hear -

Puis-je? = May I ?

Que sais- je ? = What do I know?

 

 

 

 

 

Seen. Thanks
