    1) Check your spelling of correct.
    2) When you say "Is it correct to say ...?" do you mean that you are planning to simply put the words "Questions about the subject of a sentence" at the top of a list of questions?

    2) When you say "Is it correct to say ...?" do you mean that you are planning to simply put the words "Questions about the subject of a sentence" at the top of a list of questions? Not really. It is at the top of a chart where explains how to write information questions with who.
    In fact, I have another mistake, 'Who visited you yesterday?'
