subjective / objective pronouns
(1) What does he want ?
(2) How old is he ?
(3) What is happening ?
(4) What day is today ?
In (1), he is the subject and what the object. As for 2-4, I am not very certain as to which is the subject and object when the "is" verb is involved. Can anyone help me out ?
Re: subjective / objective pronouns
In (2) he is the subject. In (3) What is the subject. In (4) today is the subject. With questions, we often invert the normal word order, putting the verb before the subject.
