    Hi Raymott,
    Thank you for your correction. I keep on doing this mistake all the time.
    After 'is' should be the subject, which is 'the question'. Right?

    Yes. You invert the subject and verb for a question.
    So, "It is correct." (statement) => "Is it correct?" (Question)

    Examples.
    "Is it correct?"
    "Is this sentence correct?"
    "Is my paragraph correct?"
    "Is what I have written correct?"
