    Question 'Am I' or 'I am'?

    Say you've got a sentence like this:

    "Why _am I_ so turned on when you rise you eyebrows?"

    Should it be AM I or I AM, since the question is not about whether I am or not, but the reason for me being so?

    It's "am I". Not only dichotomous questions require inversion.
