There are two main types of question in English.
Subject Questions: You want to know who/what does something.
??? ate my chocolate.
Who ate my chocolate?
Object Questions: You want to know what someone did, or to whom/where/when.
Tom ate ???
What did Tom eat?
Subject questions are easy to make. You just use 'who' or 'what' instead of the subject of the sentence.
Who wrote Hamlet? (answer: Shakespeare wrote Hamlet.
Who is going home? (answer: My sister is going home.)
Object questions are more common but more difficult to make. You need an auxiliary verb (do, be, have ...) before the subject, and a main verb (go, make, think ...) after it.
|How long||have||we||been waiting?|
