A wh-question[1] (also written WH question[2]), aka information question,[2] is a question aimed at eliciting information, in contrast to polar questions which are aimed at just getting confirmation with a simple yes/no answer. The eight most common question words are which, what, who, whom, whose, when, where and why. Most sources also include how.
