Do the same with other who, which, whose and what questions, this time without looking at
the suggested question starters. 

Do the opposite, giving your partner an answer and seeing if they can think of a question 
which that is the answer to. Other questions which you didn’t think of are also okay, as 
long as there aren’t other more obvious answers to that question.
