Mensagem:  Hey guys!!!

Well.. I am here because I am really concerned.
I have seen a sentence, in one of the English books I work with when I teach, and there was an exercise, where the students had to listen to a conversation and then answer some questions..
Well, there were two questions that were supposed to be built with two basic structures, which we are sick of using..
The questions were like this: "Why Jean suggests her to do that?"
and the other one was: "What her mother is going to do after that?"

So guys, my question is: Are these sentences gramatically acceptable? I mean, they were found in a material used to teach english, so I was kind of doubtful whether they could be used or not.. I know the right way is: "Why does Jean suggest her to do that?"
and the second one: "What is her mother going to do after that?"

So, if it were a student who wrote the way I saw in the book, I would definately correct him or her. Although, it was seen in a book, so I am here to ask you guys what you think about it... Could it really be left there like that? I mean, is it possible? or are they really really unacceptable?

Thanks guys, I'll be waiting for your reply.
