in a situation where I'm showing three pictures to someone, what is grammatically correct to say (and with what difference in meaning)?

Tell me which is your favourite one. or Tell me which your favourite one is.

I would really appreciate any help you can provide.

    I think you should also consider adding tell me which one is your favorite – Vivekh Apr 8 '16 at 14:10
  • Thank you. And what about the grammatical question I asked above? – W.H. Apr 8 '16 at 14:33
  • Please, any answers? – W.H. Apr 8 '16 at 17:10

I think it depends on whether the question "which one is your favorite?" is in quotes. If the question is not quoted, it should be:

Tell me which your favourite one is.

If the question is quoted, then it should be:

Tell me, "which one is your favorite?".
