    I got simple questions

    "Where do your grandfather come from?"

    This one is correct expression, but if he's dead
    then can I say

    "Where did your grandfather come from?"

    And the second question is I want to know
    which one is correct.

    "What are you thinking about my idea?"
    "What do you think about my idea?"

    Plz, help me.

    It should be: "Where does your grandfather come from?" If he is dead use did.

    Say: "What do you think about my idea?"
