I just want to know if this sentence structure sounds Ok.

What type of cell this tissue made of?

I'm suspecting this because I didn't find any sentence like that on Google.

  • How it sounds doesn't matter. It isn't correct regardless. – user3169 Aug 8 '15 at 1:59

    @Dory When in doubt, think of its declarative sentence first, e.g. This tissue is made up of [blah blah blah]. Let's say that you want to ask what kind or type of cell [blah blah blah] is; you convert the declarative sentence into a question: What type of cell is this tissue made up of? -- I'm sure there must be a similar ELL question with some good answers somewhere, but I don't know what question it is. – Damkerng T.

Please look at the following sentences to know the correct construction of this sentence:

The OP's correct sentence should be:
