The word questions are questions which begin with a question word, such as what, when, where, who, how, why and which.
If you begin your question with a question word, put the model verb before the subject.
For example:
What do you like about this movie?
When are you going to school?
Why don’t you listen to me?

When the question word defines the subject of your question, as in ‘who’, ‘what’ or ‘which’, the question word comes first, then the verb, without the model verb, because the subject is not known, it is being asked about.
For example:
Who gave you this book?
What will you do if I don’t agree with you?
Which school offers this course?
