Wakarimasuka/wakaruka - Do you understand?

Doko? - Where?

Naze?/doshite? - Why?

Nandesuka/nani?/nanda? - What/what is it?

Kore-wa nandesuka - What is this?

**Note: The 'ka' syllable is sort of a verbal question mark. If the word has 'ka' at the end of it, a question is assumed and a question mark is no longer necessary.
