Hi Asun,

The answers aren't so important; it's more important to ask the questions correctly.

Be careful - they aren't all examples of Subject questions. There are also some examples of Passive forms.

Moreover, questions with "where" and "when" can never be subject questions.




1.- Who became UK PM In May? In subject questions, there is no auxiliary "did", the verb shows the past.

2.- Which teams came 3rd and 4th respectively...?

3.-Who scored the most goal for Spain?
Ronaldo. He's not even Spanish :D

4.- In December they decided the host of the World Cup. Which two countries are going to hold them?
Russia and Qatar

5.-How many miners were rescued from a mine in Chile?
33

8.- Which tournament didn't Rafa Nadal win
in 2010 ?
Wimbledon

9.- Whose painting was sold at auction for a record $ 106m?
Matisse

10.- When did Spain have a general strike ?
November


Well done!
