   Sara, you are confusing the way to make questions, making questions with auxiliary verbs in general is one thing (the first lessons of grammar in English we have), but there are a special kind of question where you expect some description of people or things.

   Description is the name of the game here and the key word.

 

   See how it is the structure to such a thing:

When we want someone to describe something or someone for us,
we can ask the question "What is ... like?"
What is the weather like?
It's hot and sunny.
What's your mother like?
She's patient and kind.
What's New York like?
It's big and exciting.
What was the match like?
It was boring.
