Questions

Interrogative pronouns are used in asking questions. Thepronouns who, what and which are used as interrogative pronouns.

Examples .: Who ate the cake? What did he say? Which is your sister?

Direct questions

Interrogative pronouns can be placed at the beginning of a sentence in order to ask a question. Such questions can be referred to as direct questions.

In a direct question, when the interrogative pronoun is the subject of averb, the verb follows the subject. In the following examples, the verbs are underlined, and the subjects of the verbs are printed in bold type.

Examples.:What has happened?
Who has been gotten here?

In these examples, what is the subject of the verb has happened, and who is the subject of the verb has been gotten (to arrive). The presence of the interrogative pronountransforms the statement into a question, and a question mark must be used.

When the interrogative pronoun is the object of the verb or the object of a preposition, inverted word order must be used, with the first auxiliary preceding the subject of the verb. In the case of verbs in the Simple Present or Simple Past, the auxiliary do or did must be used.

Examples.: What do you buy?Which did he choose?
What are you doing?
To what can one attribute his success?

In the preceding examples, the subjects you, she, he and one are preceded by the auxiliaries do, did, is and can. In the first three examples, what and which are the objects of the verbs. In the fourth example, what is the object of the preposition to.

The pronouns Who, Whomand Whose

| | |whose |

The pronoun who usually refers only to persons. Unlike the other interrogative pronouns, who changes its formdepending on the case, as shown in the following table.

Who

When who is the subject of a verb, the subjective case must be used.

Examples.: Who opened the window?
Who will help him?

It should be noted that when who is used with the verb to be, or with verbs in the Passive Voice, the subjective case must usually be used, since such verbs cannot take an object....
