    What is Mr. Wong?

    (Ask) What is Mr. Wong?
    (Answer) Mr. Wong is a doctor.

    ************************************************** *************
    My comment is :

    1. The above way to ask a question is wrong.
    2. Mr. Wong is a human for sure. Why do we ask "What is"
    3. I suggest that, "What is Mr. Wong's occupation" or " What is Mr. Wong doing?"


    Thank you.

    In the right context, you may hear the question phrased that way. However, most of the time, you'll near native speakers say, "What does Mr. Wong do?" or "What's Mr. Wong's job/occupation?"
