How about putting a "som" in there?

"Forstar han det som jeg sier?" - is that still correct?

I am really not sure, that's why I did not report it. It seems correct to me.

It is technically correct, but it's easier just to use 'hva' in the stead of 'det som'. It's like changing the English sentence to "Does he understand that which I am saying" - correct but unnecessary.

Forstaar/Forstår*

It's correct, but it would be uncommon. You would just drop the 'som'.

How do I decide whether I should use hva or det?
