Interrogative Question Structure
The structure of a question when using interrogative terms, the term is placed at the beginning of the statement, transforming it into a question.
|Combien (how much)||Combien pèses-tu? (How much do you weight?)|
|Combien de (how many, how much)||Combien d’enfants a-t-elle? (How many children does she have?)|
|Comment (how)||Comment vas-tu? (How are you?)|
|Où (where)||Où vas-tu maintenant? (Where are you going now?)
D’où viens-tu? (Where are you from?)
|Pourquoi (why)||Pourquoi as-tu fait ça? (Why did you do that?)|
|Quand (when)||Quand est-ce qu’ils vont arriver? (When are they going to arrive?)|
|Quel(le) (what/which)||Quelle heure est-il? (What time is it?)|
|Qui (who/whom – as objects)||Qui rencontres-tu à l’aéroport? (Who are you meeting at the airport?)|
|Quoi** (what)||Tu vas porter quoi ce soir? (What are you wearing tonight?)
**Quoi is a little different from the other interrogative pronouns because it never begins a statement but rather it follows the verb.
|À quoi (to what)||À quoi penses-tu? (What are you thinking about?)|
|De quoi (about what)||De quoi parles-tu? (What are you talking about?)|
