This seems to have spawned two chats; one is here, and the other is here.

@rogermue: D'oh! Just realised that. :-) Let's try again: Q:"Was it an accident?"; A:"We don't think so."; Q:"Then what did happen?".

And one more example is here. I have some less-relevant comments, which I've made over on the chat page.

@rogermue:"When you ask about the subject you use who/what + verb form (no use of do/does/did)." That's true in normal usage - but it's not true if you're using "to do" as a way of emphasising what you're saying. For example, at the end of this conversation: Q: "Do you love Juliet?"; A: "No"; Q: "Then who do you love?". See also here, here, here, here; + here

@rogermue: I'm having difficulty understanding your comment. Could you rephrase it?

comment km plural or singular, “out of which 100 km is motorway”
Sure; but if you do use the symbol rather than the full word in a written sentence, you still have to make a choice as to whether the verb is the singular or plural form.
