    what, who = pronoun
    how, where = adverb
    much, many = quantifier
    how (many/much) = quantifier phrase (QP)

    Re: please put a tick on the square

    My first impulse was to say "they are question words".
    If you are interested in finding out what part of speech they are, it would be a good idea to consult a dictionary. They give reference to word classes at the very beginning of an entry. 'How', for instance, belongs to two classes.

    Re: please put a tick on the square

    You've asked a remarkably similar question before. The answer is still the same: consult a dictionary; it will tell you what part of the speech a word is.
