Position of verb for object clause?

Is the general word order of this sentence correct? > We investigate how strong the effect of X on Y is. Or, as an alternative, > We investigate how strong the effect of X is on Y. In a preprint for a scientific publication I came across the formulation: > We investigate how strong is the effect of XZY. and now I'm all confused.
