Question Words with Prepositions

edited August 2014 in Portuguese
Some question words in Portuguese must be preceded by a preposition. This happens when the verb requires a preposition, as in eu gosto de sorvete, I like ice-cream. The verb to like, gostar de, is always followed by the preposition de (of). 
In such cases the preposition comes before the question word and not at the end like in English. 
Look at some examples.
De quem você gosta? Who do you like?
De onde ele vem? Where does he come from?
Para onde você vai? Where are you going to?
Para quem ela mandou o email? Who did she send the email to?
Com o que eu devo cortar o bolo? What should I cut the cake with?
