difference between subject and object questions

OBJECT QUESTION

When you ask an object question, you know who the person is and would like to get some information about them.

  • Where does Tom live?
  • Where did he go to school?
  • Who does he live with?
  • Is he going to work here?

 
In the above questions, it was clear who we want the information about: it was Tom.

 

SUBJECT QUESTIONS

If you don’t know who has done something and would like to find out, you ask SUBJECT QUESTIONS

  • Who lives here?
  • Who went to this school?
  • Who lives with Tom?
  • Who’s going to work here?

 
In the above questions, we wanted to find out who the person (the subject) was.

Must be done many exercises for a correct response.
Thanks for your site, it is very useful.
English grammar is terrible without a site like yours.
Hope to make progress – I want to write and to speak ,
because I need this and I love that language.
I am a beginner.
