1) The football World Cup starts on the 11th of June, doesn't it?

2) Where is the World Cup being held this year? (There really isn't a better word than "held". The usual phrase is "to hold a tourament".)

3) My exams will finish on Monday.
My exams will be over on Monday.
My last exam will be on Monday.

Note: Twice, you wrote "the football ball..." The sport is simply called "football".

I have a query in the 1st sentence is using starting is incorrect I am just a bit confused as you have used starts why We say sarts and not starting.Also if I have to ask someone about exams so can I say" when are your exams getting over".when do actually use getting or we dont use it.Thanks

The progressive tenses are used more commonly in India than elsewhere, I believe.
You can say, "The football World Cup is starting on the 11th of June, isn't it?" if you need to. Note that it doesn't "start from" a date. It can only start on a certain date. Following that, it doesn't start again the next day.

If you want to ask a question, you use the forms that you've been given, and use the rules for formation of questions, eg.
"My exams will finish on Monday." -> "When will your exams finish?"
"My exams finish Monday" -> "When do your exams finish?"
