Forming subject questions

Subject questions with no auxiliary are formed with: question word + verb + object, where the verb agrees with the subject.

Who speaks Japanese? Kenji speaks Japanese.
Who rang the doorbell? The milkman rang the doorbell.
What caused the accident? Bad weather caused the accident.

Whose and which are used to ask about possession and choice, and can be used in subject questions like this:

Whose horse finished the race first?
Which painting cost the most?

Using 'what' or 'which'

As well as which, what is also used to ask about choices. If the choice is limited, we use which and this is usually followed by a noun.

What social networks do you use? 
What happened to your shirt?
Which chair is yours?
Which of these restaurants has the best menu?
