Most questions are object questions. In other words, they ask about an object. Example: Where do you live?. However, there are also subject questions. Questions we ask to find out about the subject. These questions are asked using 'who', 'what' and 'which'. Example: Who plays football in this class?. take a look at the following chart of question forms:
