    polite requests


    I have always seen that the pronoun 'you' is always used in polite question 'would you, will you,..etc'. I would like to ask if the sentences I have written are OK or not.

    Polite requests:

    -Will someone open the door?

    -What would she like to do now?

    -Will she have something to eat?

    Re: polite requests

    'Will someone please open the door?' 'Will someone open the door, please?' These are polite requests.

    Your other questions are not requests. Who's 'she'?
