I'm writing a story, which takes place in a past. Can you tell me which option is correct?
When I was wondering what
1)did with the egg
2)with the egg did
someone pushed me.
I've chosen 1) but I'm not sure.

The question as worded is confusing.
If you mean the choice between
While I was wondering what to do with the egg, somebody pushed me.
While I was wondering what with the egg to do, somebody pushed me.
the first is more natural-sounding, whereas the second only works if you want to sound archaic or poetic.
Anyway, you may need to edit the question.
