Pronouns in questions

Level: beginner

We use who to ask questions about people:

Who is that?
Who lives here?
Who did you see?

We use whose to ask about possession:

Whose coat is this? or Whose is this coat?
Whose book is that?   or Whose is that book?
Whose bags are those? or

Whose are those bags?

We use what to ask questions about things:

What is that?
What do you want?

We use which to ask someone to choose something:

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
I've got two books. Which do you want?

We can also use what and which with nouns:

What subjects did you study at school?
What newspaper do you read?
Which newspaper do you read –
The Times or The Guardian?
Which book do you want?
Which one is yours?

I correct all sentence
but I want to compare questions, which has a preposition in the end or not
sorry if I'm wrong grammar.

Hello dejavubmt!
I'm sorry, I'm not quite sure I understand your problem. We use prepositions in questions when we need them! If you're not sure, think about the answer. For example:

I'm looking for a ____
has a preposition, so you need to use a preposition when asking the question:

What are you looking for?

Hope that helps!
