    Exclamation Change into question.

    Hi

    In a grammar exercise like the following one the exrcise asks the students to change some statements into question.

    1. The papers are on the desk.

    One way is to ask "are the papers on the desk?" My question is that is it also correct to use a wh question to ask this statement saying that "where are the papers?"
