I am studying the subject and object questions and I saw an example here Asking object - subject questions. "Did" or past form of the verb in Past Simple but I'm not sure it that's correct: The other example of affirmative question:

The affirmative sentence: They took her home.

Object question: Where did they take her?

Subject question: Who they took home?

Is the subject question correct? It sounds weird for me. Thanks in advance.

No, the subject question should be

Who took her home?

The subject in the affirmative statement is "They" and the object is "her". So there are two "object form" questions

Where did they take her
Who did they take home.

Both have the fronted pronoun and subject-verb inversion.

The subject question simply replaces the subject with the question word "who".

  • Thank you so much! It confused me a lot, now it's clear!
