• What else it could be?
  • What else could it be?

I saw both of these sentences have been used in English. Are they both correct? If so, what is the sentence structure of them.


The word order in a question requires that the verb precedes the subject.

Here 'it' is the subject, 'could' is the verb, so the proper way to form the question would be to put 'could' before 'it':

What else could it be?
